Jay Dirnberger, who flew helicopters during the Vietnam War, will be the featured speaker at the Y’s Men of Westport/Weston’s Thursday, March 12 meeting at the Unitarian Church in Westport at 10 Lyons Plains Road.

Dirnberger saw his first drone-like weapon in 1968 as an infantry captain flying helicopters with the 1st Cavalry Division in South Vietnam.
While patrolling the coast of North Vietnam, the U.S. Navy destroyer USS Mansfield, with Dirnberger aboard, deployed a modified unmanned aerial submarine detector to bomb enemy installations.
