Our AH-1G Cobras with the 7.62 mini-guns used to wreak havoc in Vietnam too.
Yes, great video!
Great video with some very truthful parts.
Unfortunately, it can not counteract the PowerPoint presentations produced by REMFs to support their general’s unsupported personal opinion that is masquerading as AF Policy.
To make this powerful presentation even more powerful, and change the nature of the staff conflicts, I would include the oath of enlistment and re-enlistment for officers. Show a bit of Combat Camera’s superior work and a phrase from the oaths mentioned above.
Then the next time, and there will be a next time, the REMFs and the general officers that support them come up with another death by PowerPoint presentation we can say - very nice but how does this proposal support your oath of office; or doesn’t that count anymore?
Twenty years ago I blew out of the water an Air Combat Command PowerPoint briefing about absorbing AFSOC into ACC as another numbered Air Force and how it would be so much better for everyone. My question - what changes to existing Federal Law will this proposal require? Things got real quite and the screen went dark.
One of my favorite airplanes. Thanks for posting.
It’s been reported that the Special Forces guys poking around in Laos and Cambodia found a blackboard in a cave with the inscription (in Vietnamese) “Don’t shoot at the skinny helicopters”.

Officers dont reenlist. If your profile is true, then you spent quite a bit of time walking around with a chip on your shoulder, but never learned much. </hard truth>
Just watch the video and enjoy it.
