Not a drill

Students at Lonoke High School watch as helicopters from Camp Robinson land Friday at the football practice field. First Sgt. Greg Oginski and SSgt, Kevin Micheli coordinated with Lonoke School District officials to briefly use the field to load a group of soldiers from the 39th Medical Unit, stationed at the Lonoke Armory, to take them to Fort Chaffee near Fort Smith for training. Oginski said it was not a demonstration but was “utilizing local resources to most efficiently meet operational needs;” the helicopters were available at the same time the soldiers needed transportation. But it is nice to be able to show the unit at work, he said. (Photo Ed Galucki)
