Colombia has seen war for many weary years. Finally, peace agreements are progressing between the government and armed groups, but the fight continues against drug smugglers and those who disagree with democratic institutions. Commanders Cortés and Tarazona are men of honor who care for their soldiers as if they are family. They demonstrate that within the aircraft of the Colombian National Army are professionals with admirable qualities. To those they support on the ground, the Army’s aircraft—and those who give them flight—appear as glory coming over the horizon.
