    Wounded Warriors visit Air Cav on journey back to Iraq

    After receiving a humorous message through the crew chief headset, Sgt. Omar Avila from Brownsville, Texas, enjoys a laugh, while learning the basic functions of an AH-64D Apache attack helicopter at Camp Taji, Iraq, Feb. 4. Avila was visiting the 1st Air Cavalry Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division, U.S. Division–Center, as part of Operation Proper Exit, a program which brings wounded Soldiers from Iraq back to the country to give them a sense of finality to their combat experiences in Iraq. Due to injuries from an improvised explosive device in 2007, Avila had his right foot amputated and suffered extensive burns.
