    I've done some IFF training with A-10's in New Mexico, they're very cool, there were also F-117's, if we were able to track them for a certain amount of time they'd always tip their wings and do a flyby afterward.

    I've gone through an instance of too close for comfort air support in Afghanistan, F-16's trying to thread the needle with directions from an FAC that sounded more like a stuttering Elmore Fudd, I remember my 1st Sgt elbowing me, pointing at the map, fuck'n Elmore Fudd didn't know what the fuck he was doing.

    I would've been better off had I got hit in the head with a sledgehammer.

    We had the A-10s' shell casings from their 30mm guns falling all around us! It was pretty exciting. Not so exciting for the Iraqis.

    You'd mentioned Ft. Drum before, were you in the 10th Mountain during Desert Storm?

    We had around 200 in the 81st TAC at Bentwaters, around 40 % were tdy in Germany at any given moment along with some other fol's. That combined with the HH 53's and C-130's at the sister base Woodbridge made for a pretty good experience.

    Here is what we used to do. We would go TDY to Germany every week or two and stay for a couple weeks at the fol's. They actually had a customs office on base and we had to go through it when we came back. Our TDY box was pretty big and they didn't have authority to check it for anything so we would put everything from ski's, clocks, alcohol, and anything else that we could pack in there. It went straight to our shop and we could get it out then. I always brought back some trinket or something through customs, just because, LOL, LOL I always figured it was stupid to have a British customs agent on a base we actually controlled.

    Oh yeah, I was at bentwaters when that Alien shit went down in 79 and again in 80. That stuff was for real and the Base commander who did the TV program about it was a straight up guy. Nobody lied about any of that stuff, if anybody has heard about it. I'll personally vouch for it all being true....
