1. U. S. Army Mohawk (OV -1D) Marker
Inscription. The Mohawk is a high-performance, two-seat, observation aircraft made by the Grumman Corporation. The first model flew in 1959 and the last came off the production line in 1970. First deployed in 1962, it became the mainstay of Army aerial surveillance during the Vietnam War. Since then, it has always been at the forward edge of preparedness, patrolling uneasy borders with East Germany, Czechoslovakia, North Korea, and other danger spots in the world. During the 1991 Gulf War, Mohawks were credited with locating and maintaining watch over Iraq's elite forces.
