Psolka, who is an Osprey pilot assigned to Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 265, Marine Aircraft Group 36, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, III Marine Expeditionary Force, participated in Cobra Gold, an exercise designed to enhance interoperability with multinational forces and strengthen relationships in the Asia-Pacific region.
