Welcome, Hugh Hewitt readers.
Home is the sailor, home from sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.
(Robert Louis Stevenson - 'Requiem' from Underwoods)
The Blackhawks from 2-25 Aviation Regiment, 25th Infantry Division performed a missing man formation flyby during the memorial ceremony while the bagpipes played "Amazing Grace".
It was a fitting tribute to the men lost and a wonderful expression of the sentiment of those left behind.
The ceremony also included recognition of the members of 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment who were lost as well.
If thou didst ever hold me in thy heart
Absent thee from felicity awhile,
And in this harsh world draw thy breath in pain,
To tell my story.
Shakespeare - Hamlet, Act V, Scene II
