The 4-229th AHR was reactivated March
1,1988. We were so inspired by the achievements of the AVG Flying Tigers that we
asked them for affiliation. The AVG came to Ft. Hood, Texas and stayed with us
for a few days. I know I speak for most new "Tigers" that it was the
most memorable experiences I have ever had.
With the Honor came the responsibility to
uphold the name, and that we did by maintaining the highest
readiness status for all Apache units in the Army.
