Making an effort to rescue American fighting men? How ‘70s,,,very retro.
Very inspiring. Thanks for the link.
Unfortunately the current occupant in the people’s house couldn’t be bothered with learning how military assets could be effectively utilized to accomplish a successful rescue effort.
You said it! It rubbed me the other day to see the president walk off Air Force One with that jacket on. What a slap in the face to the real men/women who are true combat flyers. Looky, looky! I got mine, too! Don’t I look great, or what!
Thanks for posting this. What a great story and what brave men, flying into the face of the enemy to rescue a downed pilot before he could be captured. Real men.
Thanks for the link.
Ping to you, dearest houeto.
I worked with a guy 7-8 years ago who was a Vietnam-era PJ, an Air Force Pararescue Jumper.
He was a rather intense guy. I would love to hear his take on Benghazi. I’m sure his commentary could be use to remove paint from surfaces.
Thanks a ton onyx. I got goosebumps the first time I saw it. Then I got heartbroken due to our lack of effort in Libya. Now I’m just furious over it.
I’m with you.
Warriors. American Warriors.
Thanks for posting this TigerClaws. My Dad sent it to me the other day. Very impressive! Damn shame that our current CIC plays for the other team. Pray to God that this changes Tuesday.
