On a Lighter Note

Here I am, sitting on an old Iraqi AAA (Anti-Aircraft Artillery) piece on our FOB. It reminded me of when I was a kid, going to the airshows and the Armed Forces Day celebrations and climbing all over the military equipment. Bact then, all the stuff was really big compared to me, but this thing had a tiny little seat that looked like it was built for a five year old.

I do not know the make and model, but I believe it is a Russian built 23mm cannon.



Until Later....

SCOUTS OUT.

MDG.....OUT!!

MDG: When I was maybe ten, my Dad took me on an AFB with a buddy of his who was an officer and I got to check out an A-10 and even sit in the cockpit. I remember that GAU-8 gun looking so huge. Come to think of it, though, it still looks huge! heh

Thanks a million for blogrolling me, but what I, and all of us here back home, can never thank you enough for is your service. You guys are our heroes, our hope, and the reason we sleep safely at night. We're proud of you all.

Please stay safe and know that we're behind you—every day, all day—and eager for you to get back home.

Thanks, MGD.
