Opinions large and small, worth everything you pay for them.
While not a huge fan of the Air Force (60 day deployments, other people set up the tents, barbed wire around their section of the post to keep the Army out, and being escorted everywhere within their enclosure to ensure the sticky-fingered grunts don't steal the silverware...which we might have, if that shit we wanted wasn't too damn large to conceal), I am a huge fan of their FACs and rescue teams, who are serious studs of the first order.
As an aside; no serious arguments with the AF. It's just that when you share a post, it's made clear who the rednecks from the wrong side of the tracks are. Didn't much care for that attitude after living out of a 2.5 ton truck and a rucksack for a couple of months in '03. But they do fine work, as evidenced by the video.
Guy I used to work with retired from AF after just over 20 years, and one of his standard gripes, if the subject came up, was needing other people to secure their areas because most AF personnel got bare-minimum small-arms and combat training; he'd had a fair amount and hated always having to depend on(usually) Army to take care of it.
