Elephant walking a B-52, ducking SAMs and surviving “the Hilton”
Elephant walking a B-52, ducking SAMs and surviving “the Hilton”Co-pilot William Arcuri’s last B-52 mission and his prisoner-of-war experience The electronic warfare officer yells into the microphone, “SAM uplink -- 5 o’clock, SAM 6 o’clock, SAM 7 o’clock.” Four Soviet made SAM-2 surface-to-air missiles, each armed with a 288-pound fragmentation warhead, are racing up at more than 2,600 miles an hour toward the third group of B-52s that had just bombed a railyard north of Hanoi. A B-52G Stratofortress flying at 38,000 feet out of Anderson Air Force Base in Guam, code-named Quilt 3, is just beginning evasive maneuvers free of its deadly payload.

Sail Army; The Life of an Army Mariner
Navigating the port at nightPERSIAN GULF – Ocean waves break on the gray hull, splashing men in uniform as they don body armor and dash across the deck to mounted machine guns. An officer overlooks from the bridge and issues orders from his handheld radio, occasionally looking at his watch. The men quickly load their crew-served weapons and scan the ocean within their predetermined sectors of fire. A loud whistle blows several times, and the men methodically unload their arms and seal them with a waterproof tarp designed to protect them from the salty ocean air. This was just a battle drill. It is one of many drills they will do while out to sea. This, however, is not a Navy ship. This is the United States Army Vessel SP4 James A. Loux, a Logistics Support Vessel (LSV-6). Sailors do not crew it, Soldiers do.
