In 2004, a team of veterans and interested non-military civilians took a fully restored Vietnam war bird known as "Huey 091" on a six week journey across the nation.
Since that historic journey, Huey 091 has been resting at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. There she will stay for at least the next 30 years as the centerpiece and largest single artifact of the museum's Price of Freedom exhibit.
Her historic journey was captured in thousands of photographs and hours of videotape. These materials will be edited into various education modules which will be added to the curricula of children from elementary school through high school. This history of service and sacrifice to our country will be presented in a way not found in today's textbooks. Through the efforts of the Huey 091 Education Foundation, these educational modules will be carried by hundreds of school districts across our nation.
The �Huey 091� project is just the beginning. Many other projects related to the Foundation�s purpose will be developed and presented to this nation�s greatest resource, our youngest citizens.
