"Mark my words: There'll never be a more screwed up time in Washington." -Bill Randa
The Vietnam War was a conflict that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, officially fought between North Vietnam and the government of South Vietnam. The North Vietnamese army was supported by the Soviet Union, China and other communist allies and the South Vietnamese army was supported by the United States of America, South Korea, Australia, Thailand and other anti-communist allies. It was a part of the Cold War.
In 1973, the Vietnam War was beginning to die down, however massive protests were being held in Washington, D.C. with protestors arguing to end U.S involvement in the war. At this time, the scientific government agency Monarch was on the verge of being bankrupted. An uncharted region in the Pacific Ocean dubbed "Skull Island" was recently discovered via satellite at this time, with Monarch official Bill Randa proposed to U.S Senator Willis to lead an expedition to the island with the sole purpose to uncover the existence of Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organisms there before the Russians. He required a military escort a recruited a helicopter squadron called the Sky Devils to the expedition. Mason Weaver was also an anti-war photographer at this time.
