    News this AM said they ran afoul of power lines.

    Tragic. Ok, Military, that’s enough things falling out of the sky for a while, please.

    Fair winds and following seas…

    Every loss hits me harder the older I get. Sad.

    BTW. Several MSM outlets were reporting yesterday the area where the bird went down even before military announced there was an incident and before search and rescue (S&R) was dispatched.

    Again, putting lives at risk. If there were survivors the adversaries could have surged on crash site and same for responding S&R.

    Fox reported: There are reports of a possible helicopter crash in Iraq, we will await official word from the Pentagon.

    I will never forget how CNN and MSNBC almost had SO1 Luttrell caught and executed in Afghanistan by reporting the general area and then the very village where he was awaiting extraction. We watched it all play out at GRU 2 OPS CTR.
