T Lee, when men have lived through and seen what you have, the brutal reality of war the constant threat of death or injury the constant pain and fear of yourself and your comrades, how can you forget how could anyone expect you to.

I have the very deepest admiration for all our soldiers past and present your lives have touched and influenced the way we all live today.

god bless you.

Loggy, I actually had it easy compared to the Grunts humping the bush day and night. They have my admiration!

It shows up for me. I don't know why you can't see it.

I know this thread is ancient but I wanted to take a moment and thank all the rotary air crews personally. T LEE you outdate me by an entire generation (my first war was Desert Storm, last was a tour in Afghanistan in 09/10) Having been delivered and retrieved by helos on numerous occasions I salute your ethos and grit. I know the sights, the smells (hell, I can taste it right now) and the feelings. The tasks given to aircrews border on lunacy at times and I've never seen them even flinch!

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your courage.

I can't sleep. The day T Lee wrote this I was at camp Atterbury Indiana waiting to deploy to Iraq. As it turned out we ended up supporting the 160 SOAR at ft. Campbell and I never made it to Iraq. I went to Afghanistan as a contractor in 2009. I did 32 years as a LEO and retired in 2008. I never had to pick up the dead and dying in a Huey but I saw my share as a LEO. I did 20 years in the National Guard with 12 1/2 on flight status. Gott 1000 hours in the air. Went to Ft. Hood and did Medevac for 8 months there.
