All that for recruiting. They could have just showed easy physical fitness test, lack of standards, dining facility (chow hall) and dorms (barracks) as a selling point.

Really takes a "tough guy" to insult an entire military service in a corvette forum thread.

You sir, are one of the most pathetic individuals I have ever encountered on any forum (car or otherwise). I spent 27 years in the USAF and am very proud of the organization and every minute I spent in it. Would be interested in what your service has been to our country.

Awesome picture of the Snowbirds bomb burst, what year was the photo taken? I simply love them, the Tutor they use are older then all the pilots and support team, but damn they look fantastic. So you were part of the SnowBirds team? What year if you don't mind me asking, and when they getting the Hawkers that the Red Arrows fly.

Oh yeah, almost forgot very nice C7, my wife loves the colour told me we should of gotten it instead of the Torch Red. Bit by bit I'm brainwashing her to accept Torch Red as the best colour, it's a slow process.

Hobby: Slapping down internet tough guys for their insolence.
That's what his profile says. Don't think he says these things in person.
Myself I was Army and and I would never say something like that about another branch. My son is an USAF Academy grad and Air Force Pilot and I couldn't be more proud.












USAF Academy is the hardest to get into, by the way.

Way awesome Vette TBRDS!
Reminds me of going to air shows with my dad.
I grew up with my signed Thunderbird poster on my wall.

You are just totally off base. This is a privately owned tribute to the Thunderbirds. Tribute to the USAF and demo team
