Medevac Pilot CW4 Brendon Erdmann: One of the first flights I did was in the Korengal. The OP (observation post) was under attack and it is so small that you can only do a two wheel landing. Fairly tense, trying to load a patient who was shot in the head. We were engaged (shot at ) as we departed. It was really challenging. With Medevac nothing is planned. Because everything happens so quickly you have to be spontaneous. Saturdays and weekends tend to be busy. Fridays Taliban fighters go to the mosque and are charged and accomplish what they need to do on Saturdays. When I get back I am going on a Disney cruise.
