119th Assault Helicopter Co. – "Alligators", "Gators" and "Crocodiles" - The 119th Assault Helicopter Company’s 1st and 2nd Platoon’s “Gators” Pocket Patch was approved in January of 1967 by then Commanding Officer Major Edwards. The patch was designed by Warrant Officer Terry Muldoon. The artwork was "fine tuned" by Burt Muldoon father of Warrant Officer Muldoon at Stewart Warner Corporation Art Department. Pocket Patches and large Nose Art and smaller Flight Helmet Decals were also produced for the 119th AHC by Burt Muldoon.

The 119th Aviation Company was activated June 1962 with assets from the 81st Transportation Co. (light helicopter). The 119th deployed to Vietnam in December 1962 and were assigned to the II Corps Tactical Zone in the Central Highland near the tri-border region where Cambodia and Laos merge together with South Vietnam. The 119th made their base at Camp Holloway near the town of Pleiku. Camp Holloway established in 1962 was one of the oldest bases in South Vietnam. Camp Holloway had the distinction of being the highest permanent helicopter base in South Vietnam with an airfield elevation of 2640 feet.

In 1967 the 119th was assigned to the Flying Dragon’s of the 52nd Combat Aviation Battalion and underwent a name change and became the 119th Assault Helicopter Company. Late in 1971 the 119th AHC relocated their area of operation east to An Khe. In March 1972 the 119th AHC stood-down and departed Vietnam. The 119th AHC was twice awarded the Valorous Unit Award.
