Transcript

A documentary airing Tuesday night on KPBS-TV tells the story of a little-known Navy squadron, the Seawolves.

That's despite them being the most decorated in naval aviation history.

The documentary, “Scramble The Seawolves,” tells the story of the squadron that existed only during the Vietnam War and protected service members in boats on South Vietnam's Mekong Delta.

The creator of the documentary, Jeff Arballo, joins Midday Edition Tuesday to discuss the Seawolves and what inspired him to tell their story.

“Scramble The Seawolves” airs on KPBS-TV at 9 p.m. Tuesday.
