This is a Desert Storm Veteran. Flew itself Proud. Happilly I found my photo,showing "Boys From Syracuse" our slogan and history that was ripped from us due to Political Correctness. Unless things have changed, this tail number is on one side of the display model in the National Guard Bureau office in Wash.DC. I've added 2 Photos taken during Desert Storm. Glad to see it posted.
