About 30 min into top gun I thought it was going to end up overhyped but damn, the end was awesome. Great flying scenes throughout. My wife, 9yr old daughter and 12yr old son all really liked it. Def see it in theater preferably a imax or Dolby.
They asked me what drove me to pursue a masters, I said because I had to for promotion. They then asked if I still would have done it had that not been a promotion requirement and I said “not a chance.” Their faces were priceless. But I think they appreciated the honesty and not some BS line about “bettering” myself.
Yeah man, I get that 100%! And I did apply to the 158th as well! And man, I HATE that I missed the meet and great, but no shock it was uber competitive. I was actually the unlucky recipient of multiple flight delays, and the only other flights that could get me to Savannah would have gotten me there after the event was over. It was tough, but the Captain I spoke with about it was super, super cool. I've always heard that C-130 guys are an awesome group, and he certainly proved that.
Best of luck to you brother--hoping we can all get some good news soon!
