    This piece on Time.com was really cool.

    Just great to see some of our military at work.

    That was pretty cool, I can relate to what they said at the end, after everything is done every one breathes easier, I was a tail gunner on a B 52, in 72 I was in Thailand for Linebacker II and we flew alot of sorties over Hanoi, everbodies ass was rather puckered up until we dropped our load and got the hell out of there, the AAA and Sam's were pretty thick at times

    It's cool to see young men doing something important, demanding, working as a team and showing some leadership. No better place to develop leadership than the military.

    I like when the Lt. Col. says he'll make the decision on when to drop. No BS, no committees, no shirking responsibility. I'll make the decision.
