We were hit by some nasty weather over the weekend. A strong storm blew in from the southwest and brought winds gusting as high as 50 knots. There was also brief but heavy rain, and a bit of lightening. It didn't stay for long and quickly moved off toward the northeast where it created a rainbow over Boise.

A forward arming and refueling point located close to the ordnance impact area helps give aircrew longer times on station since less time is spent in transit. We can upload ordnance and refuel quickly, increasing our lethality.

Snow-capped mountains and rolling hills add new challenges for Warrior aircrew. It's a huge change from the forested flat-lands surrounding New River. We're building up our exposure to the new flight environment with day-time familiarization flights before moving on to specific weapons delivery and close air support training.

Each group of Warriors that arrived in Idaho came via different routes. Not all of us got to fly there in AH-1Zs and UH-1Ys--some took "military air" while a few fortunate Marines did some sight-seeing in areas like the Jackson Hole, the Grand Tetons, and even Las Vegas.

Warriors have landed in Boise! Today we're beginning our first flights around the local area to get familiar with the airspace and ranges. Aside from a couple of days of rain, it has been sunny and beautiful with sun forecasted for the next week!

Happy Military Child Appreciation Month!

April is the month to celebrate and appreciate the unique contributions the children of military parents make in our lives. From infants to teenagers and even adult children, our kids experience a different lifestyle than most of their peers and this month is dedicated to appreciating and understanding those differences.

So take a moment to thank a military child for the contributions and sacrifices they make so their parent(s) can serve our country. (Even if every day seems like child appreciation day!)

Thank you!

Warriors,

Please complete your DEOCS soon! Instructions have been posted throughout the squadron and are also available on the liberty brief. Feel free to come by the FRO office if you have questions or run into trouble completing the survey.

You can access the survey from your phone, personal computer, or a government computer. It only takes fifteen minutes to complete and your input is vital!

Have Guns, Will Travel

04/07/2021

We're looking for volunteers to drop off goodie bags at the FRO office for our upcoming detachment to Idaho. If you're interested, please put together gallon-size Ziplock bags with snacks for the Marines and drop them off by April 16th. We need approximately 140 bags in total this time!

It's contributions like these that make the trip so much more enjoyable! Past goodie bags included things like small bags of chips, granola bars or Cliff bars, trail mix, and some cookies, but really anything is appreciated!

In aviation, we often wish we could control the weather! Fortunately, we can control our reaction to it, which is exactly what the Warriors did when a significant storm system approached MCAS New River recently. The Marines of HMLA-167 pulled together and "stacked the barn" in a manner never before seen. UH-1Ys and AH-1Zs stretched from one end of the hangar to the other, with mere inches between wing-stubs and rotor-blade tips. Way to go Warriors! HAVE GUNS, WILL TRAVEL

Leave your lunch at home tomorrow!

We're celebrating HMLA-167's 53rd birthday with a free pizza lunch for all Warriors. Come enjoy Little Caesars pizza and grab a soda at 1130 in front of the hangar. Happy birthday, Warriors!
