Gunfighter Diary Desert Shield 29 Dec 90

29 Dec 90

160176, 5T2, 2.2, 260, PeeWee

Watched tape of the UT-A&M football game, fingers "Hooked" for the Cotton Bowl now.

Flew with PeeWee, followed Injun and Super Dave around. We flew a reaction course where enemy threats were simulated by guys on the ground flashing mirrors at us and Diamond chasing us in another Huey. It was a great drill, helped us practice crew coordination, tactics, SOPs, comm, control, etc... We aslo did some TERF, vs the 500 feet we've been fling for the last 2 months. It makes a big difference as to what we can see and where we can mask. We need more training like this.

Had some chow, finished filling sandbags. Figured out it helps keep the wind from whistling through the tent. Now if they will just do the same thing for shrapnel.
