S! tenmmike. That's cool. Every once in awhile, I see a promo or pic of a C-130 I've worked on. Not quite the same as you, of course, but still cool. And about staying in: My dad was in the Army 26 years, retired at CW5. He could have stayed in longer, but the "new" Army just didn't suit him. I see the same thing in the USAF. So talk to your buddy, but you might find you're better off out.

To everyone: PS- I'm in no way slamming the US armed forces, I just don't agree with some of the internal policies implemented. It can be a great way of life. Bear in mind, the military lifestyle is not for everyone, and not everyone is suited for the military.

An Airman 1st Class (E-3) was claiming he was going to put whatever he wanted on his hardhat, for decoration. (Yes, hardhat, not helmet. We work in an industrial-type backshop, heavy a/c maintenence) He was hinting at his First Amendment rights, freedom of expression.

I overheard and told him "You're here to protect freedom, not experience it." http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif I let him think about that. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.

Ivan hasn't lived with this: "93 inch shovelhead.. dave mackey racing heads all S&S guts..andrews and jims trans." Proper description but 'slang' to him. He knows it... Nothing personal intended.

First off, Im a Senior Airman(just got BTZ http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif), an Avionics troop on C-5's. Whenever we get new guys, mostly a1c's, we always get a few that tell US how things are run. Its quite funny actually. For example, one new guy explained to our truck driver(NCOIC) that "it was his Friday and that lunches needed to be planned accordingly", i guess so he could get a cut back. Well that didn't fly and by the end of the night, he helped tow all planes, helped fuel every plane(all over 225,000lbs of fuel), and changed tires with the crew chiefs. Havent had a problem with him since!

Congrats on the promotion, Undertow. An avionics troop on C-5 tire changes! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif I love it. As a C-130 engine troop, I try to avoid crew chief work, whenever possible. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif There's a reason for specialists. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif If you can apprieciate the situation with that young troop, then your on your way to becoming a good supervisor someday. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Tenmike, I hope your M8 is well, but your friend should know, Iraq is much more dangerous place than the Central Park after sundown.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gifhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
