This week our guest is CW3 Avery Johnston, currently an AH-64 Apache Helicopter Pilot, and formerly an OH-58D Kiowa Warrior Pilot. Avery, who served as an OH-58D pilot in 2012, talks about his experiences supporting the ground force in Panjwai and surrounding areas, how it matured him as an officer and an aviator, and how it shaped his future as an Army Aviator. Avery's insight into the war in Afghanistan in 2012, flying out of Kandahar airfield, is an enlightening window into the scale of the fight in 2012.
