    We remember: On this day 13 years ago, 18 members of the 203rd RED HORSE Flight of the Virginia Air National Guard were killed when their C-23 transport plane crashed near Unadilla, Georgia. The Virginia guardsmen were flying home through heavy rain after two weeks of annual*training at Hurlburt Field, Fla. The three members of the aircrew of the C-23 Sherpa transport were also killed. It was among the worst peacetime tragedies in the National Guard’s history.

    I was in Kuwait when it happened. Heard "RED HORSE" when I was walking by the TV, and stopped to listen. (I was with the 820th RED HORSE at the time, so it caught my ear). I was the one who broke the news to their Squadron personnel who were in bedded with us at the time. A very sad day in my life.
