Dealing with people who didn’t even know your name? Autry spit off the side of the cliff. This wasn’t just his job. It was his life. He’d spent nearly a quarter century in TF-160 before XBat came along. He’d been involved in many of the Nightstalkers’ major operations over the years. Lebanon. Rwanda. Cuba. Moscow. His specialty was going in and getting people out of tough situations, and some of the stuff he’d done was so classified even the other members of the TF-160 didn’t know about it. Bottom line: He’d given his all to Army Aviation.

And what he needed right now was an explanation. Shaw did his best to thrust the yellow orders envelope into Autry’s other hand and say his goodbye, but Autry made sure he wasn’t going anywhere. He calmly but firmly pulled Shaw from the SUV and escorted him through the crowd of troopers, stopping only once Sky Hunters: Anarchy's Reign 27 they’d reached a deserted spot next to one of the unit’s souped-up copters, out of earshot of the others.

He’d never been accused of being anyone’s favorite, in or out of XBat. Years before, when he too was part of the regular TF160, he was supposed to fly the infamous Black Hawk Down mission into Mogadishu, Somalia. However, after claiming a vague illness—and displaying a pair of Sky Hunters: Anarchy's Reign 37 slit wrists—he missed the operation and as a result had been forever labeled a coward within the Nightstalker community.
