    Default Military Job

    Hey all, so the other weekend I decided to take out my GoPro strap it to my helmet and show you what I do for my military job. I'm a landing support specialist and this is one of the aspects of the job. When people or cargo have to be moved anywhere on the battlefield my MOS does it. This training was simulating helicopter cargo lifts, it was daylight and the perfect chance. Watch in HD, and you may have to adjust volume.

    Some might think we are crazy but its the biggest adrenaline rush and the job has to get done. The hooks on the helicopter and helicopter itself can carry a charge of about 200,000 volts of static electricity. Not to mention the helicopter is no more then a couple of feet above your head...sometimes lower. Also the 100-150mph winds. Fun!
