Apparently we were in the same AO. 101st 70-71. Sorry, Army not Marine.
Fort Campbell graduate are ya?
Live not far from Campbell at Ky Lake.
When I was there we called it the "Phrog"
The 46 and the Army's helicopters can do things the Osprey can't, like coming into a tight, hot LZ with a big flare and pedal turn, all the while chopping tree limbs and taking hits. Then chopping your way out and doing it all in 30 seconds. The grunts will miss her.
Good bless all of those pilots
