Package of Kiowa Warrior helicopter pilot flying with Task Force Outfront in support of 173rd ABCT in Afghanistan.

Kiowa Warrior helicopter pilots are taking the fight to the enemy in Afghanistan. The 101st Aviation Brigade's "Task Force Outfront" aviators have flown over 6000 hours since arriving in January, and Outfront averages over eight missions a day. SSG Pat Malone introduces us to one pilot who's dedicated his life to supporting Soldiers on the ground.

Task Force Outfront provides reconnaissance, lift, and close-combat attack support to Task Force Bayonet's area of operations.

Interviewee: Chief Warrant Officer 3 Eric Leach, Kiowa Helicopter Pilot
