Bucket Work

Doing our annual re-qualification for Bambi Buckets.  Yeah, those are my feet hanging out the side of the helicopter.  Sitting in the door gives you the best visibility for the drop.

Sea Cobra

Marine Sea Cobra overflies the house
It's been pretty slow here what with most of the unit being off to Kosovo, and me working with the rear detachment.  Kind of quiet...  So when I heard that distinctive Huey "wop-wop-wop" I grabbed my camera and caught this guy probably headed to 29 Palms.

In non-military related news, the Missus and I just got back from a trip to Havasupai in the Grand Canyon.  Trip report here.
