It was about 1140Z. Two MH-47s, callsigns Turbine 32 and Turbine 33, were closing on the LZ (Landing Zone) near the base of Sawtalo Sar, the compromised team’s last known position. Two Blackhawks and two AH-64 Apaches were flying cover, and Grip 21, a flight of two A-10 Warthogs, were circling above.
Lt Cmdr Kristensen, commanding SEAL Team 10, and the four-man Special Reconnaissance team’s commanding officer, was aboard Turbine 33, determined to lead the effort to get his SEALs back, in one piece if at all possible.
