 1st Aviation Brigade

1.vzdušná brigáda byla aktivována ve Vietnamu 25.května 1966 a stala se jednou z největších jednotek v zemi. Ve "vrcholné formě" pod ní spadalo 441 bitevní vrtulník AH-1G Cobra, 311 transportních CH-47 Chinook, 635 pátracích OH-6A Cayuse, 2 202 UH-1 a dalších 641 letadel s pevnou nosnou plochou. Brigáda prováděla podporu amerických a spojeneckých vojsk, taktické útoky, průzkum, řízení palby, evakuaci zraněných a samozřejmě přepravu materiálu, vojáků a v rámci programu rozvoje venkova i jihovietnamských civilistů.
Přehled jednotek 1st Aviation Brigade odpovídá přibližně polovině roku 1968, u brigády se během jejího nasazení měnily jak jednotlivé roty, tak i vzdušné prapory nebo celé skupiny. Vlastně všechny vzdušné grupy (kromě 101st Aviation Group) byly někdy součástí brigády.
