D Troop, 4th Squadron, 6th Calvalry, Kirkuk, Iraq.
This is a pic of my nephew, Will, who is a helicopter pilot and has been there since June 29 '07. This is his first tour in Iraq. he said that he has flown more in the last two months than the entire year in flight school! I'm so proud of him and even though he has only been there a short time he has already spotted an IED from the air and warned an oncoming convoy and averted a tradgedy. He is my hero! We love him and miss him a lot.
