Take Me Home Huey documents, through stunning photographs and Maloney’s narrative, how the sculpture evolved – from a wish to honor Vietnam veterans 50 years after the war’s end into a touchstone for solace and connection among veterans, including some with PTSD. 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.
