Ok....looks like a few more responses to answer....starting with the all too familiar and very important OPSEC, INFOSEC, etc.
I am at home here in IL and thats when I go into HIGH ALERT mode RE: INFOSEC and OPSEC. When on duty or away and on site, I will not be on here
could see myself getting carried away in a conversation via a forum and spilling my guts only to wake up in the brig awaiting a C.M. and a trip to
Actually I am extremely careful on what 22 and other information I give out and/or confirm or deny. As a rule of thumb, I will only
information that is already available on-line which has officially been deemed 'Unclassified' or public. I am very happy with my current status and
don't want to see my SC revoked.
I just want to correct some very inaccurate information I saw with respect to the 22....piddly little stuff like: "Hmm....I thought it had a cloaking
feature like the Klingons
As far as getting into a heated debate, I agree with ya 200%...especially with the site content
Thats ok though...I can push a button on my KBD
here and unload a few SDB's to calm the storm. LOL
Good deal on the crew position. I have a very HIGH amount of respect for you guys. Without you guys on constant detail, a lot of the older aircraft
would be long gone. I spent over 780 hrs in the 16. Do you service mostly Block150CU's with the upgraded APX-109 and APG-66A goodies?
The 16 is just a plain awesome cost effective solution to many problems. I love it. Period.
Hello and glad you could view the pix and videos on the site there. Air shows are just plain awesome. Now you might want to go to one near you in the
. It takes about a year..sometimes more...to plan and get favorable logistics results for the next years show. It can be a co-ordination
nightmare sometimes. But for the attending public, they just need to show up, knock down a few and enjoy (unless it's VFR or MVFR weather
conditions). Then ya get the 'ol "sorry folks...no show today...not even a low altitude one because the NWS still hasn't updated their forecast
models to reflect common sense"
Tnx again and I hope you make it to one by you.
I thank YOU for thanking us
Norfolk is indeed a nice place. I am more of a Lord Howe, Marshall, Guam, etc. Island guy only because I love that
warm, crystal clear, perfectly aqua/blue water all those places have. My personal rule: If I cannot see the bottom, I ain't going in...period. LOL. I
guess I am afraid of those Sharks that like to hang out in a few feet of water
With respect to the spiritual/religious side of things, I return the compliment back to ya with equal value. Most boards I talk on (not many really)
would boot my *** right out if I got caught mentioning that. Glad to see this is a different and more open minded type scene. I hope you are where you
want to be with respect to your beliefs and/or thoughts. It's a tough world I tell ya. I know I am only in my mid 30's, but I have found out by
administering/hosting/teaching at Youth Group, that for kids growing up now, the pressures, stress, etc. seem to have exploded in both severity and
lack of parental support, care, etc. I say that only because it is what I see here locally. Every time I open the local paper, I see another kid take
his life or run away suffering from major mental health issues. Maybe it's just because I care so much that I notice it more...I not sure, but I am
sure that something needs to be done to minimize it.
The parental comment was in no way reflecting on anyone in here, but was just what I see as a major problem.
Thank you much for your input
