Farewell old friend, you served well.

Aerial Cavalrymen of 6th Squadron, 6th Cavalry Regiment, 10th Combat Aviation Brigade, 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry), fly all 30 of the squadrons’ Observational Helicopter-58D Kiowa Warriors in formation over Fort Drum, N.Y. and surrounding areas. After more than 20 years at the installation, the OH-58D will be retired after a final flight July 28, 2015, as a part of the Army’s Aviation Restructure Initiative, which will replace the Kiowa Warriors with a combination of Attack-Helicopter 64 Apaches and unmanned aerial vehicles.
