RONKONKOMA - New York Army National Guard Soldiers dedicate a UH-1H "Huey" Helicopter outside the Army Aviation Support Facility Number 1 at Islip-MacArthur Airport here Nov. 10. The ceremony, held on the eve of Veteran's Day, commemorated the service of National Guard aircrews past, present and future with members of the 42nd Infantry Division Assoc. present for the event. The Huey was placed outside the flight facility earlier this spring in order to be present for the redeployment of the Soldiers from the 3rd Battalion (Assault Helicopter), 142nd Aviation Regiment, 42nd Combat Aviation Brigade home from Iraq after a yearlong deployment. "For 39 years, people have driven past MacArthur without knowing that the Guard was here," said retired Brig. Gen. Ray Doyle, former commander of the aviation brigade. "Now, there's no doubt about it."
