Vietnam, 31 January 1968. Over an action-packed 24 hours, three lives collide amidst war and violence. Captain Mark Warren and his crew are trash haulers, airlifting supplies and personnel on their C-130 Hercules, the workhorse of tactical airlift. Flying a Huey, the helicopter that symbolizes mobile warfare in Vietnam, Wilson Tanner is a Dust Off pilot who risks all to rescue the wounded. At Se Pang, Colonel Tran Sang Quan comes into conflict with inept superiors as they initiate the People's Army of Vietnam's long-planned General Offensive and Uprising. This is the beginning of the Tet Offensive. Both sides face more than the enemy as superior officers maneuver for political advantage, and where cowardice, prejudice and treachery infiltrate the ranks. In the air and on the land, raw courage, tenacity, and honor are the marks of humanity that deal with the wreckage of war. Fast-paced and gripping, 'The Trash Haulers' is an exciting aviation thriller from a master of the genre, and, in the telling, paints a rare portrait of the war.
