TWJ Podcast welcomes back former guest CW4 Greg “Gravy” Coker, US Army (Ret), who served 22 years in the U.S. Army, 15 years as an AH-6 “Little Bird” attack helicopter instructor pilot who was specially recruited, assessed, and selected in the Army’s only Special Operations Helicopter unit, 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment – the Night Stalkers.
Greg was one of the senior Lead Instructor Pilots and responsible for planning and executing special operations missions in support of our nation’s most elite special operations units, 75th Ranger Regiment and 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta. Coker logged over 7,000 hours of accident-free flying, more than 6,000 hours flying under Night Vision Goggles, and a staggering 1,500 hours of combat time spanning a 30-year military career and eleven combat tours from 2001 to 2007.
“Gravy” recently finished writing a book, Death Waits in the Dark — Six Guns Don’t Miss, the story of a special operations attack helicopter pilot who flew with the renowned 160th Special Operations Regiment (Airborne), and the incredible friendships Greg Coker and his fellow compatriots forged in the heat of combat.
