Iste Lee Terrible. Praying for them and their families! Also: There better not be any important soldiers conveniently removed, because that sh*t is not going to fly this time Joe. We remember your last helicopter crash.
Walther PPK All Navy/Marine choppers should have something like an airplane’s inflatable escape slides that can pop out with the push of a button to keep the chopper afloat. Something. Anything is better than crash & hope.
