Living in London now, playing DCS, and missing the hell out of my flightline colleauges, especially those in San Antonio.
Best men, women, and culture I ever worked in. The corporate world doesn't even come close.


Did one combat tour augmentation, 4 months, in Iraq from July to October 2008, with the ANG units from Syracuse, New York and Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Laughed my ass off and bent wrenches with some amazing people.
