"We've been providing situational awareness and attack assets to the troops on ground," said U.S. Army Capt. Lucien Lapierre Jr., TF Marauder, 1-151st Attack Reconnaissance Battalion, Bravo Company commander and AH64 Apache pilot. "We provide them eyes in the sky to tell them where the enemy is so they can safely make movement on the ground."
In addition to the attack helicopter assets providing protection to the ground troops, TF Marauder also utilized CH47 Chinooks to transport the troops to and from their missions in the area, as well as medevac assets to provide medical aid and transportation for any casualties. There were also UH60 Black Hawk helicopters on standby to act as a quick reaction force, if needed.
