We own the night…

We’ve mentioned the Nightstalkers before, the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR). They’re the Army’s dedicated unit to provide aviation support to special operations. They are the most highly trained helicopter unit in the world.

  1. These guys are the best of the best helo drivers. You can read about them in Michael Durants excellent book “The Night Stalkers”. The pilots fly their special operator “customers” in some of the most dangerous missions anywhere and almost always during, you guessed it, the night. One was shot down in Anacoda IIRC. I’m a little surpized they have a recruitment video. I thought you were asked to join not the other way around.

  2. No, they (and DELTA, for that matter) have aggressive in-house recruiting programs. There’s an article every year or two in Soldiers magazine about them, as a recruiting tool.
