this was a great airplane the Dcc was a great guy. I was back home. The ANG was the biggest circus I ever worked for. Lots of good people.This unit was really messed up. The biggest screwups got the most promotions. I just could not take all the politics. That is one reason I bailed out. This unit has someof the biggest screwups I have ever seen in my military career. But they were a good bunch of people overall. Some of are more important to me than my family
