    I was a Team Leader in the old LRSD unit. Great unit! Thanks for the focus on the forces. Good to see they found a mission. I hope that they still have a friendly competition with the other Pathfinder company that we had with them in the 90’s

    Hard to see the detail on my phone but can anyone tell me what typically might be causing the paint to wear on the bottom of the Blackhawk? I have not seen a wear pattern like that before. Maybe its just the way it looks on my phone.

    Glad to see my unit made it onto the force focus! That was an awesome day but the night iteration was much better.
