One Black Hawk helicopter and nine soldiers from the Kansas National Guard’s 108th Aviation and Company G (-), 2nd Battalion, 135th Aviation Regiment (General Support Aviation Battalion), headquartered in Topeka, will fly home to Kansas on Saturday, June 23 from their mission of assisting firefighters in Colorado battle wildfires that have raged near Fort Collins since June 9. Available in high definition. Currently, the fire is more than 50 percent contained and Colorado emergency management officials have decided to start releasing assets called in from other states. The Guardsmen used a 660-gallon Bambi bucket slung beneath their helicopter to drop water on the flames as directed by ground personnel.
