  •  Fighting in the Air Force? (0+ / 0-)

    Bull shit.  I call total bullshit.  He may have been over there, but if he saw any bullets flying I'll kiss your butt.

      A lot of Air Force police provide convoy security. There's also Air Force EOD techs, truck drivers, civil affairs, pararescue, TACP, Combat Weathermen (And Weatherwomen), as well as combat rescue helicopters, complete with their pilots and crew. I think AFOSI does some work outside the wire too.

      Not saying the Air Force is all a bunch of badasses, most people in the Air Force stay out of danger, but not all of it.

      Two of them women. We can safely assume ten times as many wounded. You might want to put on a heavy coat of lipstick.

      Thanks for slapping those hogs away from the trough.
