  2. Until Tech. Sgt. John Chapman's heroics on Afghanistan’s Takur Ghar mountaintop in March 2002, this was the only known photo of a Medal of Honor action taken while it was under way. Joe Jackson (center, top) had just put his C-123 down to pick up the combat control team airmen. The runway is littered with aircraft wreckage from a CH-47, Cessna O-2, C-130 and UH-1.(DoD) https://www.airforcetimes.com/news/your-air-force/2019/01/14/air-force-legend-medal-of-honor-recipient-joe-jackson-dies-at-95/

  7. If only there was a DOD inspection Agency that could verify the work being accomplished. And was done correctly. DCMA When I worked for Boeing on the 757 line. All of the major airlines had representatives in the hangar. Prior to closing and sealing up areas. We had to have them inspect and sign off on the area being closed. Have the DOD inspectors onboard. And charge Boeing for the work. Until they get their act together.
