Thankful for helicopters

To the woman who complained about the low flying and noise from Fort Carson helicopters.

If it wasn't for an Army helicopter in Vietnam, my brother would be dead. The pilot may have trained here at Fort Carson. Many of our soldiers have and are still. He was hit by a hand grenade, in Vietnam, thrown by the Viet Cong. Pulled from the tunnel, by his fellow soldiers. Severely wounded, it did not seem he would survive. Then as if by a miracle, there was an Army helicopter in the area that picked him up. It saved his life.

You should be ashamed.

You should just move, if you can't take the noise...
