Regional Command East - Combined Joint Task Force - 101Khost Province, Afghanistan – It was a solemn day at Forward Operating Base Salerno January 25th for cavalrymen of Task Force Shooter. As aviators climbed into their cockpits, they placed their Stetsons on the dashboard of their aircraft to commemorate the memory of the cavalry troopers of call signs Adversary 11 and Adversary 22 who lost their lives in Kirkuk, Iraq, January 25th, 2009.

“One side of my brain feels it happened two years ago while the other side seems to think it happened only yesterday,” said U.S. Army Chief Warrant Officer 5 Timothy French of Pittsburgh, the senior OH-58D Standardization Instructor Pilot of TF Shooter. “I really miss them.”
