Destin of SmarterEveryDay graduated from Advanced Helo Underwater Egress Training at Marine Corps Base Hawaii, and went back for a refresher course in getting out of a sinking helicopter.

When airplanes crash on water, they tend to float on their wings and stay upright. Helicopters, on the other hand, are extremely top-heavy, so when they hit the water, they immediately flip over and sink like rocks. Training gets the crew over their profound disorientation and out safely.

Thank you to all of our service members, past and present, and especially those who gave their lives for our freedom.

In remembrance of all those service members who’ve given their lives.
