Wicked Local
Many Americans have been watching Ken Burns’ PBS documentary “The Vietnam War,” perhaps recalling how they watched it live on the nightly news 50 years ago. But for Ken Archambault it was more than a vicarious experience. He was reliving his tour of duty in Vietnam in 1967-78 flying medical evacuation helicopters for the 1st Cavalry Army. He was 20 years old.
