Gunfighter Diary Desert Storm 24 Feb 91

24 Feb 91

We spent the day at 1st MarDiv Command Post waiting for a crane to show up and lift our bird. The maintenance crew showed up at 1130 with new crosstubes and skids. By late afternoon, no crane. I went to G-4 and asked if they could get us one. They said sure and arranged for one to show up in the morning. Meanwhile, Division had a lot of GPS receivers (Trimble Trimpacs) and I showed some a group of guys how to initialize them and use them. They were grateful, as they didn't have time to figure them out and the ground movement was underway. Spent another night at the Division CP.
