Marine Corps News> Cobras strike in support of border fight

CAMP KOREAN VILLAGE, Iraq (May 30, 2005) -- The quiet air of the camp is broken as the whoop-whoop of two AH-1W Super Cobras taking to the sky fills the area.

The Coyotes of Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 775 are off, again, to support the Marines on the ground.

Since their arrival here at the end of March, the small detachment of Coyotes has been providing close air support with their Super Cobra attack helicopters.

“We are here to support Marines along the Syrian and Jordanian borders,” said 1st Sgt. George J. Blackham IV, detachment first sergeant and native of Gibsonia, Pa. “We are their primary means of close air support for convoys, raids, casualty evacuation, and other ground operations.”
