Found Photography of Rogue Nation Overseas

Helicopter Pilot Kyle Maki rediscovered photos of his deployment in 2011.


It’s always an honor to see Rogue Nation citizens proudly displaying the Rogue Nation flag wherever they may be. But it’s truly humbling to know that we are also represented by the brave men and women who protect us overseas.

Kyle Maki is one of those courageous people.

In 2011, Kyle was deployed in Afghanistan as an AH-64D Apache Longbow Pilot. He’d brought his camera with him and captured several photos during his deployment, including a few that featured a Rogue Nation flag mounted on his helicopter.

After that, his camera went missing and seemed to be lost for good until he found it earlier this month.

A long time Rogue, Kyle has a pretty impressive collection of Rogue bottles, including some rather rare ones, that he displays at his home in Kansas.

Kyle can’t even fit his entire collection on this shelf. He’ll be building shelves for the bottles you don’t see here.

Here’s to Kyle. We continue to be amazed and appreciative of how dedicated our Rogue Nation citizens are. And we’re proud to count Kyle among them.
