I just had to share this photo with Kit Up readers on this balmy spring Friday in Washington, DC.
The official caption reads:
U.S. Special Forces are extracted from a mountain pinnacle in Zabul province, Afghanistan, by a U.S. Army UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter from Company A, 2nd Battalion, 82nd Aviation Regiment, 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade after executing an air assault mission to disrupt insurgent communication.
That's some pretty sweet flying and some kick ass action from our boys in The Stan! (Click here for the full resolution version)
PS -- Please forgive the weirdness going on here at Kit Up like the broken comments. As I said earlier this week, we are migrating the blog to a new blogware provider and implementing a redesign. This should be completed by the end of the day and we'll re-start commenting with a better user experience. Thanks for your patience...
