Drawing on in-depth conversations with survivors of the doomed Huey, others who served in the helicopter war, therapists, and historians, Maloney’s work is a stirring tribute to the heroes of the war in Southeast Asia.
The 216-page (9″x11″) book is the cornerstone of a groundbreaking multimedia project that also includes an Emmy award-winning film and an original song. The unique narrative provides vital context for the entire project through interviews with the surviving medevac crewmen, other veterans, PTSD survivors, doctors, art therapists, and historians, including Joe Galloway, the official spokesperson of the national Vietnam War Commemoration. With the addition of personal stories from those touched by the artwork, the book adds a new dimension to the art of the war memorial and is a perfect capstone to the Take Me Home Huey project.
The Take Me Home Huey project keeps growing as creator Steve Maloney adds a new book as the fourth element. After touring the country for almost three years and the many opportunities meeting veterans, veteran families, hearing their feedback and listening to their personal stories was the perfect opportunity to memorialize the project and its experiences in a book.
