    Parked just off to my right was a small Blackhawk helicopter.

    On the drive back to Hangar 2, I had passed several other machines of warfare.

    Sitting next to me was a guy in camouflaged fatigues. We shook hands and exchanged some pleasantries before he took out his note pad. It was covered in camouflaged fabric too.
