We, like every other soldier, have long had fun at the Air Force’s expense. It’s almost like they’re a real armed service! Almost!
But the fact is, there have always been some folks in the Air Force who don’t live in cushy barracks, who don’t eat out of dining halls that look like Morton’s, that in fact, have dangerous jobs. Especially since the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan began, members of the Air Force security forces have been doing hazardous duty, often alongside their Army and Marine Corps counterparts.
