That call kicked off a battalion-level investigation that, when all was said and done, found that Stokes had not only falsified his airborne certification and jump log, but that for years he had been sending false documents to the Electronic Military Personnel Office, awarding himself a Purple Heart and even a Good Conduct Medal for a period before he had enlisted.
He also claimed to have completed Sniper School and, according to his Enlisted Record Brief, spent three years there as an instructor.
Six days into the investigation, Stokes came in for his first interview, where he answered a list of basic questions. Unsatisfied, the investigator called him in for a second meeting, with more detailed inquiries.

In his sworn statement, Stokes denied lying about anything, claiming that he had worked at Sniper School from to and he had gone to jump school in — not , as the suspicious certificate stated. And in his jump log, there are several events from , a time when Stokes was stationed with 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum, New York — which is not an airborne unit. Joe Buccino told Army Times. He changed his last name from Asche in , yet Stokes was on his certificate dated His ERB said he graduated in His jump log listed 20 jumps, but in his sworn statement, he said he had eight.
Units vary in size, but are typically company - or brigade -sized units. Airmobile units are designed and trained for air insertion and vertical envelopment "a maneuver in which troops, either air-dropped or air-landed, attack the rear and flanks of a force, in effect cutting off or encircling the force". One specific type of air assault unit is the US Army air cavalry.

It differs from regular air assault units only in fulfilling a traditional cavalry reconnaissance and short raids role. Britain's 16 Air Assault Brigade was formed in following an amalgamation of elements of 5th Infantry Brigade 5 Airborne Brigade and 24 Airmobile Brigade , bringing together the agility and reach of airborne forces with the potency of the attack helicopter. Air mobility has been a key concept in offensive operations since the s. Initial approaches to air mobility focused on airborne and glider-borne troops.

During World War II many assaults were done by military gliders. Following the war faster aircraft led to the abandonment of the flimsy wooden gliders with the then new helicopters taking their place. In , U. Marine General Roy S.
Past to Present
Geiger observed the atomic bomb tests at Bikini Atoll and instantly recognized that atomic bombs could render amphibious landings difficult because of the dense concentrations of troops, ships and material at beachheads. This board recommended that the USMC develop transport helicopters in order to allow a diffused attack on enemy shores. It also recommended that the USMC form an experimental helicopter squadron.
HMX-1 performed its first vertical envelopment from the deck of an aircraft carrier in an exercise in American forces later used helicopters for support and transport to great effect during the Korean War showing that the helicopter could be a versatile and powerful military tool. The first helicopter airlift and Helicopter Sling Load mission was conducted on September 13, during the Korean War.
On November 5, the Royal Marines ' 45 Commando performed the world's first combat helicopter insertion with air assault during an amphibious landing as part of Operation Musketeer , in Suez, Egypt. The plan was to use the helicopters to drop No. Last-minute concerns about their vulnerability to ground fire meant that they were replaced in this role by French paratroops who conducted a daring low-level drop on 5 November, securing one of the two bridges intact.
Instead No. This first-ever operational use of helicopters to land troops during an amphibious assault proved successful. With their carriers lying nine miles offshore, the marines were landed far more quickly than could have been achieved using landing craft, and without the need to get their boots wet.

Marine Corps Base. One of the ships utilized for this exercise was the U. Thetis Bay. This exercise was the culmination of the Marines' developing strategy of vertical envelopment rather than amphibious assaults on heavily defended beaches. The Marine Corps subsequently adopted this method as standard operating procedure after proving that helicopters could be used to transport very large numbers of troops and large amounts of supplies in a timely fashion.
Operation Deep Water was a NATO naval exercise held in the Mediterranean Sea that involved the first units of the United States Marine Corps to participate in a helicopter-borne vertical envelopment operation during an overseas deployment. The use of armed helicopters coupled with helicopter transport during the Algerian War for the French Army to drop troops into enemy territory gave birth to the tactics of airmobile warfare that continues today.
Usually, the H could carry up to 18 troops, yet local operating as well as climatic conditions decreed that the French army examples could carry only up to around 12 troops each. From to , GH 2 took part in the major battles, which occurred near the frontier between Algeria and Tunisia, including the battle of Souk-Ahras in April The helicopters, including types such as the H, the Alouette II, the Sikorsky H and Sikorsky H , together aggregated over , flying hours in Algeria over 87, for the H alone and helped to evacuate over 20, French combatants from the combat area, including nearly 2, at night.
By the time the war in Algeria had ended, eight officers and 23 non-commissioned officers from ALAT had given their lives in the course of their duties. Army CH helicopter transports arrived in Vietnam on 11 December
