Cav trooper takes unique opportunity to remember fallen soldier [Image 4 of 4]
FORT IRWIN, CA, UNITED STATES
First Lt. Robert Wilson III, a platoon leader assigned to Company D of the 2nd “Lancer” Battalion, 5th Cavalry Regiment, 1st “Ironhorse” Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, looks out of a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter window over an area known as Refrigerator Gap March 2 at the National Training Center at Fort Irwin, Calif. “It was definitely a once in a lifetime experience,” Wilson said about visiting his father’s memorial at NTC. “I’ll never get that opportunity again.” Wilson flew over and walked near the area where his father, 1st Lt. Robert “Rob” Wilson II, a former aviation officer assigned to the 1st Battalion, 227th Aviation Regiment, 1st Air Cavalry Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division, was killed in a helicopter crash on July 22, 1989, when Wilson was 9 months old.
