37. Of course we had a mission...
Operationally, we provided front-line command and control for close air support, air refueling, humanitarian, combat search and rescue, and airlift missions, plus the "spooky" stuff. This isnt like when its on the news and its somewhere else or someone else. You are there, and its all around you. At night when you hear the gunfire, see the explosions, the tracer fire, you know it's real. WE had a job to do and we did it. Wanna see some pics? OK - you talked me into it. A couple of Saddam's palaces and some of his people's houses.
