Pennsylvania Nationl Guard pilot plucking injured troops from a roof in Afganistan
What a great photo taken in Afganistan of a rescue mission. Pretty amazing that a pilot could place the tail of that chopper on top of the building to recover injured troops in my opinion! Reminds us of what dangers can await our brave young men and women serving this great country, and the debt of thanks we owe them.

On this holiday weekend, remember those that are on assignment in dangerous territory and thank God they do what they do to secure the freedoms we enjoy.

Be safe!

HoooooAhhhhh!!! Our young people have abilities we old war-horses couldn't even think of. Praise them while we still have the freedom, folks.

God Bless our Troops, one and all.
