A retired army pilot is reacting to the devastating news of the deadly weekend attack on U.S. Navy Seals. Dick Tobiason, President of the Bend Heroes Foundation says the weapons used to shoot down the large Chinook helicopter were probably pretty crude. He flew a fixed wing aircraft in the Viet Nam war. He says this both an emotional and practical loss. "Anytime you lose a well trained organization, theoretically they are our best. In north Viet Nam they knew we were flying low and they had their rifles adjusted.” The Special Forces Operatives were reportedly blasted by a rocket propelled grenade as they used to the aid of other troops in a firefight at an insurgent stronghold just west of Kabul.
