I just arrived in Kirkuk from Kuwait for a special mission. As usual I went to meet with my assigned flight crew. The crew chief was working on the OH-58 that would take me in the mission. To my surprice thie is who I found was my crew chief. SPC Hector L. Rivera, my son. It was great to do a mission his my own son. It would have been better if my other son were our communications support, but I still hope I get to do a mission with him also. I am now on my way back to Kuwait and my other sonn, SGT Luis H. Rivera is stationed there as a communications NCO, I may be able to work with him.
