081212airassault  Soldiers from Delta Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment, Task Force Currahee, load up in a helicopter to head back to base after completing an operation near Spera in south-west Khowst province, Afghanistan, Nov. 21. During the operation they searched for weapons as well as search for key Taliban leaders within the area.


  1. I heard on the radio this morning that the Marines are still waaaaaay ahead on their recruiting goals despite everything the libs can do to discourage young folks. I have absolutely no idea why this made the network news, but what the heck — it’s great!

  2. This D Co. op is the same kind of op the Army conducted ad naseum in Vietnam. Swoop in, search for weapons caches, feed the civilians, slap on a few band-aids, grab a couple of VC suspects and swoop out.
    Meanwhile the Viet Cong continued their stranglehold on the people and control of the countryside because they were ALWAYS there.
