And again, when was the US Aircrew not great, again?
you misunderstand what they are saying with the patch.
I was a flight engineer on awacs, the job (in the air was great) the people I worked with in the air were awesome it was everything else about the
awacs community that made me hate putting the uniform on.
Things like people being offended by words on a patch, people being offended by off color jokes to relive the boredom of doing left turns in teh sky
for 18 hours, working a 22 hour day then being yelled at for not making PT.
The glory days of being aircrew are behind the military and will probably never come back, things like that patch are just the last dying gasps of
enjoying your job instead of killing yourself to make rank.
