Thank You For Your Service

We need to talk about your patriotism.

 

Feeling proud of your home is a good thing. We should do that. We should celebrate all the things that are good about our culture, and those who make sacrifices for it. I am an American, and I am proud of a great deal of American history. I am an Oklahoman, and I am proud to be from a state that had to work hard to become a livable home. I also acknowledge that neither of those organizations I belong to is perfect, and much of that imperfection is self-inflicted damage.

Azores Layover

Okay, so, on a stopover back to the United States, we landed our plane on a small portugal island that the US Air Force has a base on called Azores, somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. It’s actually weird that you can look in every direction and see the water.

A few Days in Rome

Over the independence day weekend, we got 4 days off from duty. A few of us rented a Fiat together and drove the 5 hours south to Rome.
Great trip except when I got mugged outside the Colosseum and my wallet stolen. Other than that, a lovely time.
