F-15 Eagle cockpit video, an AH-1 Cobra in action, Army Birthday Ball 2015 video, sailors saluting the USA on the 4th of July, helicopter battalion live-fire training: these are just a few of the military videos in this week's edition of Heroes in Action.
We welcome you to join us once again in celebrating our military service members and veterans. Each week, we share a number of military videos from the branches of our U.S. Armed Forces.
These week, we have a nice mix of videos from the Air Force, Army, Navy and Marines. Don't worry Coast Guard...we didn't forget about you. We'll make sure to feature a few of your Coast Guard videos in the near future.
So, if you are ready, let's watch some of our Heroes in Action!
Here's Air Force cockpit video from an F-15D Eagle (two seat trainer) while flying in formation with other F-15 Eagles from the 122nd Fighter Squadron, and F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighters. The video includes a flyover of the city of New Orleans, Louisiana.
The 2015 Army Birthday Ball celebrated "240 Years of Selfless Service to the Nation." Here's an Army video compilation put together for the event held on the evening of Saturday, June 13.
In case you missed this story earlier in the week, here's a video of Navy service member Chris Ring who is swimming the Mississippi River - all of it - to help military families of fallen troops.
We missed this one last week when we were sharing 4th of July U.S. military videos. Here's a Navy video of sailors aboard the U.S. Navy aircraft carrier spelling out USA to salute the nation for Independence Day.
Want some helicopter firepower to finish off the week's Heroes in Action videos? We've got two for you. First, we have a B-Roll package of 1-244th Assault Helicopter Battalion conducting live-fire training with night vision goggles.
US marines from the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit explain why the US helicopter Bell AH-1 Cobra is one of the best attack helicopter on service. The 2nd part of the video shows live fire training just to prove their point!
