Fellow Riggers helping the cause, from sewing parachutes to sewing surgical masks! I will be sure, always!

The 1st SFG (A) riggers at JBLM repurposed their sewing machines, that are typically used to repair parachutes, to assemble surgical masks.

“The Aerial Delivery Platoon will be able to produce 200 [masks] per day initially, with only five lightweight sewing machines,” said Lt. Col. Christopher S. Jones, 1st SFG (A), GSB commander.

Never Forget R.I.P. Gentlemen. Remember those before us.

Never Forget R.I.P. Gentlemen. Remember those before us.

October 3rd, 1993 Operation Gothic Serpent,
Soon to be forever known to the world as: “Blackhawk Down”
TF Ranger was in Mogadishu, Somalia to instill some semblance of order to a city that was starving and controlled by gangs and warlords, specifically Mohammed Farrah Aidid. On the morning of the 3rd elements of B Co 3/75 flew to the heart of the city to interdict Aidid. In the following hours, two MH-60 helicopters were shot down by RPG fire, and two Delta Operators were killed protecting the pilot of the second bird, Michael Durant.

Durant was held for 11 days by the militia, before returning to US hands. Gary Gordon and Randy Shugart were posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for their selfless actions. All in all 18 Americans were killed with over 1,000 Somali militia dead and 3,000 wounded. It was the most intense fighting since the Vietnam War.
