The Last Flight

It amazes me how so many people, places and things come together. The memories of war and the men who fought them are always there. This is the case of one young Marine, James Boswell.

At first it was a photo of a beautiful sunset and a helicopter sitting on the tarmac. The deployment was the Red Lions sundown mission and after returning from Afghanistan the unit was going to be disbanded. The unit had been in existence for 60 years as a combat support air wing. The event that was to take place would make this photo a memorial for our Fallen Six. This helicopter was #45 the one they flew the very next night of the crash. No one could have known.

The answer was yes! It would mean a lot us and we would cherish it. About a week later I received the picture and the emotions welled up again. This sign will be placed in the Cabins in Montana as a memorial to honor and remember our crew of great Marines. Thank […]
