New York Yankee’s outfielder Nick Swisher was surprised on his birthday, Nov. 25, by soldiers from 2-28 Combat Aviation Brigade, Fort Bragg, N.C., currently deployed to FOB Shank in Afghanistan. Swisher was taken aboard an UH-60 Black Hawk and allowed to fire an M240 machine gun onto an authorized firing range. The Swishers accompanied Westphal on a Thanksgiving tour throughout Afghanistan.
