KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) - A mixed-media sculpture created from remains of a U.S. Army helicopter that was shot down in 1969 during a Vietnam medial rescue is visiting Michigan.

The Kalamazoo Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/29n7B8Q ) Steve Maloney’s “Take Me Home Huey” arrived Tuesday at the Air Zoo in Kalamazoo after being on display outside Henry Ford Museum in suburban Detroit. They’re the latest stops on a cross-country tour that started last year.

The Kalamazoo native says the artwork “has been quite a journey for me, as well as the realization of my dream to raise the profile of military veterans who sacrificed so much and never received a proper welcome home.” It seeks to boost awareness of post-traumatic stress disorder.

The sculpture is on display at the Air Zoo until Aug. 31.
