Members from the 1-228th Aviation Regiment Charlie Company practice overwater hoist training June 11, 2015, only one day prior to the rescue mission that saved a stranded American off the coast of Roatan. Training exercises such as the overwater hoist training ensure all 1-228th AVN REGT personnel are prepared to accomplish Joint Task Force – Bravo’s humanitarian missions at any given time.
