Nice, are you apart of the 160th?
Heh, if I was I couldn't tell you, now could I? :P
But no - I just am a big fan of those guys.
Same, I'm a fellow sky-junkie. In fact I have flying lessons later today.
The 160th were especially awesome in somalia.
That's legit - I had the opportunity to take a few helo lessons over the summer, and I want to continue flying. Only problem is that it's incredibly expensive as a civilian. So I've been thinking about the U.S. Army.
And yeah, they did. Obviously did not go too well, but still amazing. The 160th does some pretty incredible stuff in general, though. Don't know if you've read Black Hawk Down, In the Company of Heroes, or The Night Stalkers (the last two by Michael Durant, the pilot who survived Super Six Four's crash in Mog), but they might be worth your time.
It was bad to see that Cliff Walcott ended u dying. He was very well portrayed in the film.
18 Americans were killed and 73 wounded. It is all sad.
