SSgt DCC on "Two-four the war whore". Static display with Polish government tail flash during official ceremony in Warsaw, Poland. Prime Minister announcement of purchase agreement for the F-16. And yes, I was still pretty ate up! Just talked back a bit more. Travis Clark, Pete Spoelstra, Kevin Bryan and Damon Lee all were great to work with on keeping "the whore" a high dollar dame!
