1st Air Cav Brigade shows it's strength...

I keep forgetting the full scale of US Army Aviation.

We're looking at one aviation brigade's worth of helicopters.  Just one.

That's more helicopters than most nations have in their entire armed forces!

I have mixed emotions about this.  We have this tremendous combat power and yet we were slow to deploy forces to help with hurricane relief efforts? We have this many helicopters but we're still told that we should be worried about Russia?

Quite honestly after looking at this I have to wonder if I might be overstating the threat of China.

When it comes to protecting the US we are beyond set.  Covering allies is an issue but when it comes to ensuring the safety and security of our own nation I can confidently say that the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines pretty much have that covered in spades.
