Black Knights with Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron-264 (Rein) refuel their CH-53E Super Stallion helicopter alongside an American tank in Iraq, Nov. 30, 2008. The Marines spent nearly six months supporting operations in Iraq transported personnel, cargo, fuel, food and water as well as conducting remote ground refueling for other aircraft, conducting raid operations and other duties. "For me personally it was just the deployment of a lifetime,"::r::::n::said Maj. Scott Wadle, the HMM-264 CH-53E detachment commander. "One of the things I enjoyed the most, quite frankly, was just being able to watch my Marines do what they do and do it so well." (Photo Courtesy of Cpl. Blake W. Lewis)::r::::n::
