    Commanders are dropping like flies this year

    I used the word accuser because she is not a victim. I understand the commanders role in all this. The problem I see, and someone can correct me if I'm wrong, is that when they brief the commander there is nobody on the accused side. The commander, or FSgt, should ask if there is any evidence of innocence but they usually don't. It's all one sided and those investigators lie their asses off. Not just talking about my sons case but 24 yrs in the USAF taught me that the OSI are a bunch of boobs. FBI wanna bees that can't be. The CID are cut from the same stained cloth. It's funny, actually sad, how many people think they are on your side when they would go after them with all they had and if they didn't have enough they would make it up. One thing I know for sure is that you will never get a fair trial in a court martial.

    I hope so $17,000 so far. He filed a motion for that very thing. He is perplexed as to why the Army is still going forward. Latest is some question about Brady material with the prosecuter. That was one of my biggest fears, the prosecuters/CID(in all services) are famous for pulling this kind of shit. And nothing happens to them when they get caught.

    Not always , my son got accused of sexual assault last year. The accuser(civilian) has declined to participate in the trial. The Army is still going after him 150% . Court Martial scheduled. None of the witnesses corroborate her story which has several versions. DNA test excluded him, however several DNA examples were found in her, on her and around her. It sucks because he is a good troop. The Army took him out of the fight for what is obviously a false accusation. I know, it's Army, but the AF has done the same.

    Farewell, Old Girl

    That's how it is at ABQ. You could've flown Herks for 15 years and when you go through they are going to (re)teach you how the gear goes up and down.

    Standing up the 23AF as MAJCOM

    Vito, don't recall being on that one. Sounds like you were staying in Clarksville. I'm sure I drank a paychecks worth of beer there. There are several stories about other ones that I'm not sure of the statute of limitations on. Quotes not working

    Standing up the 23AF as MAJCOM

    Don't forget to add the fact we started getting Oakleys, black gortex, Danners and Eagle Industries gear. But then somebody did some math and figured out we bought enough Oakleys to give every man, woman, child and their dog on Hurlburt ten pair. Oh man! I miss those JRTs Vito. Hotels, rental cars, per diem, hot n cold runnin babes. Never did find my flip flop in that ditch between the bar and my hotel in Pooler, GA though.

    Gun Talk

    Thought this was pretty cool. My son is a High school Junior and his class is holding a raffle. The prize? A rifle and scope, 308 Cal. How many schools nowadays would let the kids raffle off a gun? Me thinks not too many.

    Any MC-H/J drops? They are also a cool flying gig and more options for assignments.

    Happy 60th, Mighty Herk

    I know how it feels Spoo, KHRT to LIPA. However, we did it in an H at 10,000 ft, 1010 and 215 it took forever!
