I was able to work at a fire desk in which I helped guide people throughout Fort Chaffee. One of the duties at the fire desks was to make sure people did not go into zones that were considered impact areas. I also made sure they were aware of various ranges that were "hot" as a safety measure. I coordinated with two different sources to clear air space for incoming and outgoing aircraft. I liked all the Black Hawks that came to Fort Chaffee for training. I was able to go up with a few of the units coming through for training. We went around Fort Smith to assess the damage of the severe flooding that damaged a large portion of the city.
What I wish was different
I wish I could have flown in different types of aircraft. There were a few Chinooks that I wish I could have went up in.
