Thanks Orrin, but I disagree. Im no hero, Im just a pilot. Those guys on the ground kickin in doors and the medics that fix them up are the heros. Im just here to support them. I wish I could be a medevac pilot every day. Its a job that REALLY matters.

Well all of you, those on the ground, you pilots, and all the support people you have are heroes. All of you are putting your lives on the line, so those of us here in the USA can have our freedom. So while you don't think of yourself as a hero, indeed you are in many of our minds, at least in this one person's mind.
Thank you for your service, stay safe and come home soon.
I check your blog at least once a week and everytime you post something.
Great video, hope you get some air time in another one.

Laine, coincidental that you should post that clip...about a week ago, I went on a foot patrol with a group of British Army soldiers (and a US Marine) here in Kabul. We had a couple of British reporters along with us, and their story is linked here:

Laine, nice vid. It helps bring the real world into perspective from your end. Not the nancy grace crappola we see so much here in the news, assuming it could be called news. Cynjon sent me some mags (my thanks Cynjon) that talk about what's happening on the good side of things over there. Very enlightening and informative. There's nary a soul I've talked to that doesn't hope all of you get home safe and sound and are so appreciative of the efforts of all you. Stay safe!

Cynjon, yer killing me! Stay in the the compound and park your rear end at a desk, you're to darn short to go putzing down the streets and taking chances!

Laine, Maybe you can swap a ride in Jims Yak for a Blackhawk ride? Ya just need to get to Pendleton, Ore. or Ephrata, Wa. We'll call it a training mission!
