The recently retired OH-58 Kiowa Warrior doesn’t look like much. It’s small, quiet, and, technically, it’s a reconnaissance helicopter. From a distance, it could be confused for a local news chopper or a toy helicopter in “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.” But to many of those who’ve served on the line in Iraq or Afghanistan over the years, the Kiowa looks like something else: a bad day for the enemy.
Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
