I do not have a photo of MEDEVAC Pilot Suzy Danielson
But this poster covers her attitude towards life
Yesterday I posted a story on the DUSTOFF Facebook page I wrote about a MEDEVAC pilot I served with in Iraq. The story is here. She was a pilot in the Gulf War in 1991, left the Army in 1993 and forgot she was still a reserve officer. In 2009, the Army reminded her with a FEDEX package telling her to report for duty. She was 44 when she returned to active service and deployed to Iraq.
After I posted the story, I sent Suzy an email, not knowing if she was still using that address. At midnight, I got an email back from Suzy. She is in Afghanistan! Apparently she liked returning to the Blackhawk helicopter cockpit. I asked her to follow up with me when she returns.
