They definitely seemed to know their stuff when the shooting started and that's what really matters.
In the Air Force, the JTAC's and TACP's are assigned to actual Army units so they have the most Army combat type training (along with our special ops people.) The Security Force people follow a close second, with Red Horse units bringing up the rear. The Air Force has been traditionally an aviation combat branch, but they are getting more involved in ground operations. Glad to see someone from another branch of service appreciates us.
To the OP, I feel you brother on the multiple deployments. Keep up the good work, and don't get your fingers pinched when closing the ramp.
