I’m so hyped up at the moment! I just received an email from a buddy who served in my last company in Germany before I ETS’d, this was 1991. At the time he was an enlisted Aerial Observer and flew in our OH-58’s. Since then he has attended flight school and is now a CW3! But the kicker is.......he’s now assigned to the 160th SOAR and is flying MH-6 little birds! He just emailed me tonight to catch up and pass on the news.

I asked him to get me some pics ASAP! This is so fricken cool, I’m so happy for him, what an awesome career move!!!

Just thought I’d vent the excitement and pass on the news.......I told my wife and she says “Task Force what.......?”

Dam that email took a long time to get to you, Task Force 160 has been deactivated for a good number of years

This is his email, minus the sensitive info of course:



Quib,
Hey man whats up these days? All is well for the XXX family. I finally left Ft XXX, made CW3 and am now in the 160th set to fly MH-6 littlebirds. Drop me a line so we can catch up.
Later,
XXX



I know the guy wouldn’t BS me, maybe it’s not called Task Force 160 anymore, I don’t know? What other unit goes by 160th and flies MH-6's?

He should not be sending many pics, if he's doing what I think he's doing...but I am sure he is enjoying himself!!

I was busting your chops. Task Force 160 became 160th SOAR sometime in the 4th quarter of the 20th Century

I always liked the name NightStalkers

I was all excited that I'd be the first on ARFCOM to answer that question, but it seems I was beaten six ways from Sunday.

However, I'll be the first to say this:

160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment

ETA: I was sort of beat on that too, the link above says the full name.

What can I say........I'm a bit behind the times!

I Googled TF160 to find out about the "new" 160th SOAR (A).
