    U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Patrick Rogers of Galveston, Texas, helps U.S. Army Pfc. Michael Halberg of Battle Ground, Wash., and U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Ryan Stumpff of Fort Bragg, N.C., hook up to extraction equipment in Khowst province, July 4. The two 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division soldiers, from Fort Richardson, Alaska, were on a narrow ledge above a 50-foot drop while escaping an enemy ambush. Valkyrie medevac, a dual-state National Guard unit serving with Task Force Wolfpack, 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade, rescued the two soldiers with a hoist attached to their UH-60 Black Hawk.
