If not for a last second crew switch this would have been me.
22 years a go 14 Friends paid the ultimate sacrifice protecting some
marines on the ground during the battle of Kafji. Although most of the history books/ documentary seem to have forgotten these fine aviators/friends I never will.
RIP Spirit 03!
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.
