1-17 Cav (Air) – 82d Airborne flies the venerable OH-58 Kiowa Warrior in Khost, Afghanistan. This scout helicopter, also known as “Bam Bam”, can deliver deadly accurate fire in support of ground operations. The ground pounders love ‘em because they fly nap-of-the-earth (so close to the ground you can darn near give them a high-five). I love ‘em because they take care of our guys on the ground (and because I used to be a dirt eatin’ cav scout in my much younger years). Scouts Out!
