capable hands

C was able to check in with me today. I figured that he would be busy because he is part of HSM-77 (Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron Seven Seven "Saberhawks") and helicopters that can carry tons of weight will be very useful in distributing aid.  He told me that the squadron refitted the helos from their military purposes. I was impressed by how quickly the team can frame, fit, paint and assemble parts but I guess that's what rapid response is all about. We complain about the portion of our taxes that goes into the US military but this is an example of money well spent, in my opinion. I am darn proud of him and times like this make me proud to be an American.
