I will help you right now... :D :D BSU49s getting pickled. :D Ahhhh, the sweet sound of freedom. This baby went to Libya. The ribbon on the tail tells you that. I have a fighter pilot friend that got this for me. I think this was at Red Flag. I am sure we could spend a few hours reliving our time there. I worked Green and Blue section, but I have loaded this one before. :)

I was the Army and Defense Intelligence Agency representative to the Ministry of Defence in London from 1986-1989 and used to shoot the archery range off the end of the runway at Lakenheath whenever I could find a reason to get up there.

Connection?

Weak one... I was well into three years of Air Force ROTC before they disqualified me for medical reasons...

Strong one...my bro-in-law is SF Army at Bragg in N.C. He's currently still recovering from wounds received in Afghanistan, but it's going well and he's looking forward to going back.

My wife and I fully support the military and it's mission.

Joined National Guard while in High School. After 3 years in Guard I flunked physical with heart condition when I went for active duty physical. Therefor no active duty for me.

My only son pulled 10 years in Navy as a Submariner and I have number 2 grandson in Marines on active duty and number 1 grandson in Navy Reserve at this time.
