Most people like to know what their sons and daughters do for a living. I am no different. Even though my son explained it to me , I wanted to know more detail about what my son does for a living during his deployment to Afghanistan so I did a little research and found this great video, that was produced by the Army in 2008, about the same type of helicopter he flies.
A little help from up above has a huge effect on the ground. OH-58 Kiowa Warrior Helicopters are not your typical eyes in the sky. Instead, the Kiowas are reconnaissance or scout helicopters that fly up to 140 miles per hour and pack thermal imaging and global positioning systems.
I am proud of my son. This is a great video that helped me to better understand what my son does for a living everyday.
wow, fantastic! hooah! for real! I did exactly the same thing about CH47 Chinooks when my son left. AMAZING stuff they do! Helped me really appreciate the skill and abilities our pilots have, and somehow made it feel I was right there with him in the cockpit!
Really neat! Thanks for posting that. All those different MOS’s coming together.
Glad you liked the video. My name is Eric. I am the pilot who was interviewed.
I don’t know whick unit your son is with, but I am certain he is doing the KW community proud.
Great interview – love the video. I appreciate you visiting my website and leaving a message. What are you doing these days now that you are retired?
Proud Army Mom
