Sad news to report. A United States Army Helicopter, a Blackhawk, crashed in southwestern Afganistan. Initial reports state that as many as four U.S. military personnel have been killed. The Blackhawk was participating in a nighttime mission. As of right now the cause of crash is unknown.
This Sunday, April 15th marked the start of National Volunteer Week. This week, established in 1974, is a week in which we, as a nation, recognize the contributions of those that volunteer their time for the greater good of those around us. Thank you to our volunteers who, without their support, our organization would not be what it is today.
