Martin County Veteran’s site in Fairmont receives internationally famous Bell Cobra Attack Helicopter 327.

U.S. Army records show this very helicopter is internationally famous for serving the U.S, Army in both Vietnam and Laos from 1968 to 1971.

Even though five states were vying for the acquisition of this Cobra, due to the hard work of Minnesota State and Local Veterans and Volunteers, the Cobra was awarded to Martin County.

Martin County’s Veteran Memorial Committee is currently restoring this Cobra in Fairmont MN., returning it to the likeness of 1971. This detailed restoration work has been in progress since the fall of 2019.

The Dedication Ceremony is set for August 1st, 2020 featuring a parade, many VIPs, Military Personnel (both active and retired) and family members of those serving on this very helicopter.
