I did my Winter survival school and the temp was -58F the whole time we where out there.
I have also been stuck in Cambridge bay trying to get a broken herk figured out when the temp was all red flag days nobody allowed outside except for us dummies trying to get the plane out of there.
I think the flag goes out at -75F and that did not include the wind chill.
Needless to say it was booger cracking cold.
A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life wrote a blank check Made payable to 'The United States of America ' for an amount of 'up to and including my life.' That is Honor, and there are way too many people in This country who no longer understand it.'
Bottom line is we never were angels...didn't try to
be. We were not related by blood, but we were brothers nevertheless...not in some sort of Hollywood way, but in a real life "no ****" kinda way.
