Saw Something Kinda Neat Today

Today at around 4:30pm Kuwait time I was walking to the chow hall to get some food before I went to work when retreat and the National Anthem started to play. Me, along with about 4 other Airman and a couple of Soldiers stopped and popped a salute. About half way through the National Anthem a couple of Koreans (we have Korean C-130s here) in civilian clothes came out of a nearby building. Once they heard the Anthem, they stopped cold in their tracks, stood at attention and saluted for the rest of the Anthem. I thought it was neat anyway.

It made me smile. It was good to see for sure.

Last year when I was deployed the Brits and Aussies just went on about their business with their noses in the air like they were just there because they had to be. That's aggravating.

Civilian owned by Earl Cherry (founder of Cherry Air) I think he purchased it from the Swiss A.F. I got some nav seat time in it, and some jumps from it.

No apologies necessary. I didn't expect a ton of relevant responses to this thread anyway...just was trying to make a point that not all of the coalition are as bad as the Brits.

I actually have made a couple of British friends over the past couple of years. A good friend of mine married a Brit and her & her family are all pretty good people. I suppose it's because they are a rare republican breed of Brits.

Ah, true, that's a given you know that!

Hahaa I knew your boyfriend would be calling, he didnt call me, shows you who is his best buddy. Yeah I expect he was nice and messed up. I called him today they were going to lake mead to rent jet skis, after that going to preach a sermon in front of the t/a joints. I think they have already blown most of their money, go figure
