Quote of the Day
Nothing makes a man more aware of his capabilities and of his limitations than those moments when he must push aside all the familiar defenses of ego and vanity, and accept reality by staring, with the fear that is normal to a man in combat, into the face of Death.
-- Major Robert S. Johnson, USAAF

Callsign of the day

Callsign "POW"

It means piece of work, not a compliment. It got cause on my first deployment. i refused to talk to the air traffic controllers on a approach at Port au Prince airport because they were hard to understand. When I was informed that they wanted to report me to the FAA, I said "I have guns and they don't". I did a ton of things like that on that deployment.
