Summary of Events-Calendar Year 1971
 
The National Archives and the U.S. Army Military History Institute was unable to find the supplemental history for the 101st AVN BN for 1971. It would have been written in the first 6 months of 1972 which was a year that saw a lot of change for the four companies that made up the battalion. Hopefully future research will find the missing documents, in the meantime Hawks and others are invited to email me with what they remember from 1971 and I will put it in the History section under the heading A Hawk Remembers. 1971 was the year of Lam Son 719 and other operations that were connected to Lam Son 719. It was 9 February that the Hawks of D Company suffered the loss of 2 pilots and their AH-1G gunship around the Khe Sanh area. On 18 March tragedy struck the Hawks of Company D once again with the loss of 2 pilots and their AH-1G gunship, somewhere in Laos.
