U.S Marine Corps CH-46 flies over Emerald Isle

This photo shows US military at home, watching over those enjoying freedom that those in the air have fought for. The youth in this photo just sees a very big helicopter flying over him while playing in the surf. But this Marine Corps CH-46 Rescue Helicopter is a life line for those in danger.
