  • Racing with Destiny

    Jan 31, 2012

William Whiteside's potent 2005 Yamaha YZF-R1 sport bike could do. In 2007, the prior-service Sailor had been racing on a MotoGP track in Jerez, Spain, close to his assignment in Rota. Now back stateside, he was exiting Highway 167 North in Renton, Wash., onto the onramp to Interstate 405 North when he encountered some easy curves and a decent straightaway. With 165 horsepower at his fingertips and an agile bike, the onramp didn't have to be boring. At least that's what he thought as he entered the first curve.

    The public becomes very concerned when they read the newspaper and see headlines such as "Near mid-airs over the Atlantic," "Aircraft lands on wrong runway in Boston," "Aircraft lands at wrong airport" or "Pilot turns off both engines on takeoff." In this day and age, with all the sophisticated technology onboard to keep the pilot informed of position, altitude and emergencies, mistakes are still taking place; mistakes that are difficult to understand. The pilots are blamed for everything from complacency to incompetence. Whatever the problem, something needs to be done.

The unit is responsible for promoting and executing aviation operations to facilitate U.S. Southern Command's strategy of engagement and security in theater.

    Jan 31, 2012

  • Pushing Beyond the Limits

    Jan 31, 2012

    In the combat arms profession, many Soldiers engage in competition daily. Based on my experience, one of the most common competitions is the art of pushing weights.

Since many Soldiers work out together, it's common to push each other to, and even past, our physical capabilities.
