View Full Version : Procedures Established After Crash
Coalition forces followed established "aircraft down" procedures when reacting to the crash of a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter Jan. 20
The article noted:
The lead aircraft crew, made up of soldiers from Company C, 1st Battalion, 131st Aviation Regiment, "performed heroically in protecting and safeguarding their comrades" in the downed Black Hawk under extremely adverse conditions
What the hell else would they have done?? There was no other course of action to consider, and the area wasn't "hot" as I read the report. Not that it would matter, you NEVER leave your fellow Marines/soldiers under such circumstances, ever! They'll probably be awarded the DFC! When we did something similar, the skipper said "Well done, Marines!"! It was recognition enough, knowing they were safe.
They write that crap for the folks back home and the nitwits in the US Congress, 90% of whom didn't even have the stones to go into the Boy Scouts. Not that I hold our legislators in low esteem mind you.
