Sorry I haven't written awhile. As you can tell, things here have been rather busy and I know there's a handful of people who love to peek into the mind of this junior aspiring businessman as I make my way (hopefully) to the top. I've been working a lot lately, while trying to get back into shape. Hey, no one told me that when I turned 26 my metabolism would go in complete reverse. I actually have to diet, swim...and lift. What the hell?
We'll anyway, onto my story. This weekend I had the great opportunity to meet a handful of real life heroes, to hang out with my parents, and to see some savvy aerial acrobatics by the thunderbirds. That's right, I was at an air show..and MAN...they had all kind of cool stuff I was almost tempted to quit my job and sign up.
So what exactly did they have?
Everything from the B-52 bomber, to the F-117 Stealth Fighter, to snipers, to civilian airplanes. Yeah, the airplanes were pretty cool. I have to admit, standing in front of a multi-million dollar machine built completely to kill throws your mind into overdrive. You start thinking, what if I had this aircraft? Could I hunt down Osama? But the aircraft were not as exciting as the stories that these young men and women had to share. And I tell you, man, the stories they had gripped you.
Almost all of the planes featured at the Air Show served a substantial amount of time in Afghanistan and Iraq. Lets start the slide show:
Again, the greatest part about this air show was that I got to thank these hereos in person. It's one thing to cheer on heroes on the silver screen, but to meet the actual top guns, the actual war heroes, it's something I'll never forget.
Till next time. Keep on living....
