OH-58: Takes a lickin', keeps on tickin'

The person who sent these photos from Iraq wrote:

Here's one of our OH-58D Combat Scouts from Iraq. Needless to say, they got into a little hostile territory. This thing took hundreds of rounds and yet returned its crew back to base, including direct hits into the engine, transmission, control systems, avionics, flight computers, and both main and tail rotor. The 2-man crew sustained multiple injuries, but survived.

Blue Angels at San Francisco

A collection of very nice images of the Blue Angels in San Francisco. I don't know where these came from, but I'd guess they're from the US Navy.

Pictures from Afghanistan

Steve Rudolph sent these pictures that he received from H.W. Dick in Afghanistan. I'll join Steve in his sentiment: Thanks for the good work, guys. The images are thumbnails linking to larger versions.

More pix from Afghanistan and they're still accepting 'care' packages. Steve

That would be great. I'm not sure the latest pictures you've seen. I'll include the last two sets. We appreciate the support. Go Rams.

I received the pictures you forwarded from Afghanistan compliments of a friend. I know you sent that some time ago (November 2004), but I was wondering if it's still OK to forward a 'care' package for the soldiers and children there? From your original e-mail, the address to forward packages is:

Herman W. Dick
Attn: TAC House
Afghanistan Engineer District
US Army Corps of Engineers
APO, AE 09356

Is this the correct address?

Thank you for your time and your service to our great country!
