Former U.S. Army aviator Mel Walker and fellow pilot Nick Lappos were in Breckenridge for the dedication of the Cobra attack helicopter they flew during the Vietnam War.
The event was a part of Breckenridge High School's Veterans Day ceremony that also honored those who died aboard that same helicopter.
You can see the helicopter at the new Veterans Memorial Park in Breckenridge.
