Excerpts from Operation Babylift: Mission Accomplished

I was a baby from Operation Babylift. On April 4, 1975, 138 lives were lost, including the nun who had chosen me for my parents. This mission was filled with hope and so much of that hope died in the wreckage of a muddy rice field. – Aryn Lockhart

It was another gut-wrenching, heart-breaking day for me. It was as if the dreams and love I had for flying aeromedical evacuation were tossed into the debris of the crash site and swallowed in the mud of the rice paddies as so many broken bodies and twisted wreckage had been on the day of the crash.

Then, one December day, a simple phone call caused those two separate paths to cross, and when they did, they ignited a spark that became a flame of friendship and then it grew to a fire driven by a bond of love and family. – Regina Aune

Praise for Operation Babylift: Mission Accomplished

“This is a beautiful story… I believe this story will help others who are suffering from tragic experiences. Persons suffering from PTSD need to read this story, as should their medical providers and caretakers. May this story be a journey from trauma to recovery and healing.”
– Helen Antonelli, Col (Ret) USAF NC

    :

    Aryn articulated how her life has been formed not only by adoption but by searching for her roots and answers to how she became who she is. Mom (Regina Aune) chronicles her own search for closure to what has been such a traumatic experience. A historic account infused with emotion, two different narratives artfully intertwined to tell the story of how the events of April 4, 1975 has impacted so many and how we became a family.
