    Default Chinook Helicopter Recovers Navy Seals


    U.S. Navy SEAL extraction was filmed from inside an MH-47 Chinook helicopter.The pilot has lowered the ramp, dipped the tail end into the water to partially flood the compartment (a maneuver that requires quite precise flying) and awaits the Navy SEALs to board in their F470 Zodiac.You have just got to LOVE the skill of our military....

    That takes a big set of brass balls.
    STRESS: The confusion created when one's mind overrides the body's basic desire to choke the living daylights out of some idiot who desperately deserves it.

    Thursday 14 May 2009 the Vice President and Dr. Jill Biden were in San Diego, California with U.S. Sailors and their families at Naval Base Coronado. After their lunch with sailors on board the USS Ronald Reagan, Dr. Biden discussed the trials of missing loved ones with military families, and the Vice President toured the base. The Vice President began his remarks with a story:

    ----------------------------------------------------

    "Ladies and gentlemen, it's a great, great honor to be here on behalf of President Barack Obama and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mullen. I bring you their greetings.



    Admiral Mike Mullen - Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

    But I also have to tell you a little story. Admiral Mullen, as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, is supposed to be even-handed in terms of all the military services -- and he is. I asked his permission to tell this story. I can't tell you the event because it's classified, but I can tell you what happened.

    Not long ago we were down in the Situation Room with the President presiding -- members of the Joint Chiefs, as well as the National Security Advisor, Secretary of State, myself and the Secretary of Defense. And there was a particular mission that was incredibly risky and required an immense amount of skill to pull off. And several of my uniformed brethren, who weren't wearing Navy colors said, 'I think that's almost impossible. I'm not sure that it can be done.'

    Without missing a beat, spontaneously, not his prejudice, but his pride showed through, and he said, 'Gentlemen, they're Navy SEALS.' That was it. It could be done, no matter what it was, with regard to the Navy. And you've all proven him to be right."
