Gunfighter Diary Desert Shield 10 Aug 90

10 AUG 90 Fri
Finishing up rescue straps, to be used in case a bird is forced down in a remote area or over the Gulf. The aircrew will be able to hook themselves to a skid toe or strap in on a Cobra’s ammo bay door. Also procured some small aluminum caving ladders for the Hueys to carry, for a water rescue. We won’t be flying that much with hoists and rafts.
