Black Hawk Down at Tavasci

Students at Tavasci Elementary School watched as an Army National Guard Black Hawk helicopter landed on the school's soccer field Monday morning in honor of Veterans Day. Lt. Colonel Kristina Emmons is the pilot of the aircraft. During her first tour in Iraq she flew an Apache Helicopter. She will be returning to Iraq after the holidays. Emmons and her crew were headed to Oak Creek School in Cornville after taking off from TES. At OCS, Emmons' son Caden was to meet her mother with a bouquet.
