Spectre Engaging!

DJ's (Turner) Dawn Patrol.  It was taken during the early morning of 02 Mar 02.  I think it was Dave Harrison in GRIM-32, our sister ship, who took the pic.  Our call sign was "GRIM-31" and we were being controlled by a SEAL team...MACO-31.  At the time we were taking out a machine gun emplacement, killing the 3 gun crew in the process.  We were the first Spectre to fire during Operation ANACONDA.  It was near Takur Ghar.  I believe we were in 69-6569.  As a side note...the same crew in 69-6574 two days later was involved in the fiasco commonly referred to as "Robert's Ridge".   I know this pic, as a copy of it was presented to me when I returned to Hurbie and was literally out the door to my new assignment to Eielson in  late April '02.  It was given to me by then-Lt Buchner and the Intel Shop....yukon robinson, Spectre EWO
