Fallen hero, CW3 Donovan L. Briley, with his daughter.Gary McVayThe Ballad of the Night Stalker (NSDQ)

Performed by Gary McVay
Written by Kirk W. Boland

Folded Flag / Full Metal Jacket Music

Kirk W. BolandThis song pays tribute to all members, past and present, of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne).

Kirk Boland (photo right) also pays special tribute to his fallen friend, CW3 Donovan L. Briley, U.S. Army Night Stalkers, KIA 03 October 1993, Mogadishu, Somalia.

The songwriter has a line in the song that says, "The Bull, he wore a Green Beret", when the Night Stalker's berets are really, maroon in color. The songwriter made the berets green in the song because he said Mr. Briley always carried himself like John Wayne in the 1968 movie, "The Green Berets".

The song is also dedicated to Sharri and Jordan Briley.


While leading a multi-aircraft flight on the assault of an objective in downtown Mogadishu, Somalia on October 3th 1993, the Black Hawk helicopter, "SUPER 6-1" (#91-26324) flown by CW4 Clifton P. Wolcott and CW3 Donovan L. Briley was struck by an RPG and crashed.

This operation became well known to the general public after the book by Mark Bowden, "BLACK HAWK DOWN A Story Of Modern War".
