Default Air Force Logo Image setting goes beyond uniform wear
They were young and in a hurry.It didn't take much by looking at them to draw a few obvious conclusions. Short haircuts and unit logos on the sweatshirts gave them away. That's what made the events harder to understand.Maybe they were going home on leave for the first time in a long while. Maybe they had just returned from "over there" and were

My father and several uncles faithfully served during the Vietnam War. I have continued that tradition by proudly serving in Operation Desert Storm and other recent contingencies.What encouraged

I like them all" is my usual reply since she began asking me a thousand times ago. Usually, she anticipates my answer and just smiles an "I thought you'd say that"
