Last week, as we were putting our feature about the V-22 Osprey online, during a training exercise in Florida. No one was killed, but several of the Air Force crew members on board were injured. That number included U.S. Air Force Maj. Brian Luce, a pilot with the 8th Special Operations Squadron, who spoke to Seniorhelpline for that story. We're happy to hear that Maj. Luce has been released from the hospital, and we wish him and well.
