I was hoping the flight group had a few chilly beer on board—we have been going to wish it. the 1st of the choppers was once already at the flooring, disgorging SEALs and the hostage. the second one and 3rd have been simply settling in. I felt so reliable I forgot approximately placing the chopper pilots within the clinic for his or her 18-minute hold up and admin ways again at Vieques.
