Fort Campbell, KY – Three pilots assigned to the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne) received the Broken Wing Award, December 12th.

“The fact that these men were able to successfully recover from such significant aircraft and system failures is a testament to the training and experience of our aviators and crews,” said Col. John Thompson, commander of the 160th SOAR(A).
