Quote from the Crew Chief: "I was a Crew Chief in the 33 AMU, and while we were at Desert Storm 84-1234 was the supreme pile of crap. When we returned to Shaw and transitioned to the block 42s a few of us wrote letters of apology to the gaining guard unit and taped them to the inside of the panels."
