For someone who claims to have been an army officer you don't show much understanding of how and why Army aviation exists. I agree that the Army trains the pilots to bring things down to infantry speed and infantry ability to comprehend. That’s because our primary job is to support the infantry.

It's a job that neither the Air Force or the Navy wants any part of. Why? As I recall the Air Force participated in a test program and decided that what the Army wanted was basically insane. You know the part about landing in a hot LZ in a vee of five formation with mortars being dropped on you and enemy fire from all four directions. I assume you know what I'm talking about because you've claimed on many occasions you were in Vietnam.

So if you really were an army pilot and I assume you went through the same training I did you already know why. Army aviation exists to provide transportation to a combat zone and supply the infantry (and anyone else who needs us) with whatever they need to successfully complete the mission.

You should know that training and familiarization with the troops really helps all to understand what is expected from aviation and of course what we can and cannot do. 

Your snide remark about the infantry gives one the impression that you think that they're stupid and slow. I don't believe that's true. I never have. It's also not a very smart thing to say. Maybe you were with a different army but the one I was in places a high value on the infantry. It may not have occurred to you but if and when you get shot down who the hell do you think is going to come along and save your sorry butt? That's right, the infantry. 

Maybe you should spend more time thinking about the drivel you post here although I doubt you'll ever do that because you have a propensity to run off at the mouth and overload this forum with your foolish nonsense in a vain attempt to get attention. 

Perhaps you've never heard the Army aviation motto which is "Above the Best."

I'm guessing you think that means you're are above the best and not in a good way.

You are not better than the infantry just because you are an Army aviator.
