This is amazing. Check out this rarely-seen video of a U.S. Navy SEAL extraction filmed from inside an MH-47 Chinook helicopter. The pilot has lowered the ramp, dipped the tail end into the water to partially flood the compartment, (a maneuver that requires very precise flying) and awaits the Navy SEALs to board in their F-470 Zodiac. You have just got to love the skill of our military ... very few pilots would attempt this. It's too easy to lose lift, and ditch the whole chopper.
STOP THE 22 (powerful video of brotherhood and please share) - During the 3/5 Battalions 5/Year Reunion this past weekend their was a great deal of talk about the sad military veteran suicide rate of 22 a day. Sadly, a few from this battalion had fallen to this terrible statistic. One of the wounded Marines strongly suggested that everyone who honored their fallen killed in action brothers by climbing "1st Sgt's Hill" should also make a powerful statement about how we must bond together and help end this terrible statistic of 22 a day. Here is the video statement: All the Marines (including the wounded) got down and did 22 push ups to help raise awareness that this statistic must end. Plus, they did an extra three in honor of the fallen and one more for Chesty! The few and the proud! #Stopthe22 ... See MoreSee Less
