The GK trip is a nice break from the usual Guam and Deid rotations.

MSgt Ken "Airsoldier" Collins-Hardy - I can't recall a time we have not had someone some where since well before 9/11. High OPs tempo and very busy.

Capt Marty Hogan – I can't recall a time either that we didn't have troops deployed. The Ops Tempo hasn't change since I was in elementary school during the Vietnam Era, Sir. Watch Professor Kroth's video from 2:10 – 3:44 to get a reality check of Military History — Bob Hope style, one of our greatest entertainers to ever live.

Sure is- we used to have A-7s back in the late 80s/90s- then F-16s- now KC-135. A-7s I was stationed elsewhere.

Maj Marty Hogan - this is some bad ass talent right here! I remember watching them film how it's done I think on National Geographic Military something or other.
However I don't agree on with it being public knowledge as I remember hearing (and please correct me if I'm wrong) in some cases enemies started targeting these fuel beasts to weaken air forces.
Either way! I'm in total awe!

SFC (Join to see) Those were our guys in the Gunny special- they are 1950 model airplanes that have seem it all. Always targeted but in the real world- they have fighter escort at the first sing of danger. Awesome crews and maintenance guys.
