Watch Your Six

Watch your Six.
There is a term you hear often, especially in the Military, “Watch your Six”. It simply means watch your backside. You hope you see stuff coming from the front or even the sides but it is hard to have eyes in the back of your head. Often people will either let someone know they will cover their six or be careful and pay attention to your back. Well, this little hummer had one coming from it’s six yesterday. He did turn quickly enough to stop the attack and chase the other hummer from it’s area. I am telling you, it is aerial combat out there.
