Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 465 participated in a fast-roping exercise with Kilo Company, 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton Sept. 15.
To Cpl. Nathan England, a crew chief with HMH-465 and an Aurora, Colo., native, this type of training hits home and brings back a satisfying past experience.
“We pulled a lot of 3/5 out of Afghanistan after they were getting hit hard on their last deployment,” said England. “I am glad to see them home and training again, and I hope they stay safe on their next deployment.”
