MAINTENANCE

I can't begin to describe how important the Maintenance Platoon was to the Troop. In combat we relied on each other in difficult situations, but more than anything we bet our live that the aircraft would not let us down. They didn't and in no small measure we can thank the mechanics in the Maintenance Platoon for that.
