Cannot xpress enough respect to your son and family for defending America. Your son, all men & women in service and all veterans are the true role models for all Americans to strive to be.... Honor, Service & Sacrifice!!!!

That pic is freaking awesome! RIP to the young men that went down in that helo. Looking forward to seeing the pic of you and your son hanging out when he returns home safely. Much love and respect to your family sir.

Details are still few on the helo that went down. News is reporting that it was a UH60 not the HH60 the AF uses. That's an easy mistake...plus the # of crew is wrong for an AF Pedro flight. Still a terrible day for so many families. I pray for them .

Please thank him for his courage and service to this country.

Actual weapon firing/running positions are hard to get as there are plenty of weapons troops (usually either weapon loaders or assemblers,) but very few positions for gun operators. Its a sweet job. Go Air Force!

If you feel the need to correct anyone in my thread.. I'd appreciate it if you would do it through pm.. It really takes the thread off topic.
