Thank you, US Marine Corps

I don't know of too many persons who have not heard of the horrific fires in the state of California. The firemen and police officers did a wonderful job, as is supposed to be the case. But this time, there were at least 12 different fires occurring in 12 different areas. This was a catastrophe.

Thanks to Blackfive's videos, we have one of our brave Marines coming to the rescue: US Marine Corps Helicopter Drops Water on San Diego County.


Awesome!

Update: The first link above will lead you to a wonderful article written by Blackfive. Please stop over and read it.

Update II: It has been brought to my attention by xformated that it was the Navy Pilots, and not the Marines (although the Navy does try to help them when they need it, lol. Go Navy!), who were flying the Navy's Combat Support Squadron's HCS 85's that flew that mission. So I am told. If you have a disagreement with this, the beginning of the clip states what I've already noted. Go find out from Blackfive and/or xformed. Gee, I hope I'm not starting anything in the middle of the NAVY trying to whip the Paratroopers' of Love butt...lol.

Digg! Digg!
