A Dream Takes Flight

Pursuits of an Army Pilot

 

by J. Glenn Singleton, Major, United States Army (Ret.)



A Dream Takes Flight chronicles the journey of a young boy’s pursuits to become an Army pilot—and the remarkable opportunities that placed him in the pilot’s seat of the Army CV-2 Caribou transport aircraft and the UH-1 series Huey helicopter during the Vietnam War. These iconic aircraft of the 1960s opened new horizons and tactical advantages in the non-frontal war periods against hostile forces, making it a pivotal and exciting time in military history. Major J. Singleton, an Army pilot/instructor in Vietnam and Germany, shares his personal experiences and documents his Army career through the Cold War era, peacetime, and war, including his participation in training and counterinsurgency unit missions, and 11th Air Assault and Vietnam assignments. With over 100 photo panels, A Dream Takes Flight brings one man’s military career to vivid and colorful life—a must-read for those with an interest in the Vietnam War (the “useless war”!) and for military and aviation enthusiasts of all ages.
Col. Pat Hanavan, U.S.A.F. , RET. has written four great books "Caribou Airlines" about the C-7A aircraft in Vietnam : 1966-1970
