So, I mentioned OT in a unrelated thread a few weeks ago that I hired a painter. Chatting, I learned that He was a rigger in the 82nd in the late 70s early 80s, put his son through private school and into Annapolis. Son is now a hot shot Naval aviator. I saw a vid his squad put together. Pretty cool stuff.
There is nothing in this world like being in a defensive position and seeing close air support coming in from out over the ocean, flying low and feeling mean, dropping that load and hearing them scream. When I have the opportunity to do so I always buy a round of drinks for Naval Aviators should I encounter them at a watering hole.
