CAMP TAJI, Iraq — Soldiers of 1st Attack Reconnaissance Battalion, 227th Aviation Regiment, also known as Task Force Attack, honored two of their fallen brothers-in-arms during a memorial ceremony at the battalion’s forward deployed headquarters in Erbil, Iraq, last week.

In heartfelt speeches, fellow pilots gave attendees all-too-brief glimpses of the types of men the pilots were: family men, good friends and dedicated professionals.
