should play a concert for the entertainment of these guys.
Then, the entire Air Force Band can apologize to everyone who has been in combat. THEN, they can don some desert uniforms, get on an airplane, and form the First Provisional Air Force Rifle Company and relieve some Marine or Army company patrolling in Helmand or Kandahar. Perhaps after that, they can talk about “hell”, and “lack of sleep”, and “injuries”.
Meantime, Air Force Secretary James and Chief of Staff General Welch should remind Air Force Airmen not to act like spoiled little p*ssies for having to hump the Sousaphone when Soldiers and Marines are engaged in combat operations against our enemies. Oh, and the Captain and Staff Sergeant who were among the bitchers and complainers in that AF Times article? If they aren’t already out with a boot print on their respective asses, they damned sure should be.
