82nd Airborne Division Medevac in Action

Thanks to Greg Williams for the link to today's Charlotte Observer, which had over a dozen excellent pictures of medical evacuation helicopters in Afghanistan. The helicopters belong to the 3rd General Support Aviation Battalion and to the 2nd Assault Helicopter Battalion of the 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade. You might remember the 2-82 Assault Helicopter Battalion after witnessing their battalion commander in action, landing her UH-60 Black Hawk on one wheel on the side of a mountain.

So much to comment on today...

The helicopter landing was so cool that I did a little blog post of my own about the pilot: http://morebadassthan.wordpress.com/2010/02/10/lt-col-carey-wagen-40-the-first-female-battalion-commander-in-the-82nd-combat-aviation-brigade/.
