Description

This story deals with an inadequacy of the equipment in the Chinook helicopters. This story was published soon after one of these helicopters was gunned down in Iraq. The question that this reporter raises is whether the National Guard units are as prepared and have the same counter offenses as the Army. The story also reveals that 18 months before this incident the National Guard officials had noticed the dearth of essential equipment.
