In the beginning…
God created Slicks giving them the mission of Medivac, rescue, re-supply and transport and He said this is good, but the Slicks will need protection, so He created Gunships to protect the Slicks and He said this is good, but the Gunships needed targets, so He created Scouts to find targets for the Gunships and He said this is good.
Upon surveying His works, God realized that He needed crews for his creations, so He populated the Slicks with the best and most disciplined Aviators,
He populated the Gunships with lesser disciplined Aviators, and with what was left over He populated the Scouts.
He looked upon His creations and said this is good, now My Slicks will be properly protected and supported in their missions.
God spoke to the assembled Slicks, Gunships and Scouts, saying unto them; go forth and support My most favored creation……….the Grunts.

One thought on “In The Beginning”
Looking for gunts that I may have served during my tour as a slick pilot from July 1, 1968 to June 17, 1969; particularly some of those 12 wet ones that I pulled out of the river as the last ship……….
