Top pick kinda reminds me of Slim Pickins in Dr. Strangelove. What's the aircraft on the bottom? AC-130? Hard to tell from that close up.

Looks like an older pic, don't all AF guys wear BDUs?

My brother-in-law guarded the prototypes of the Daisy Cutter bombs back in the 60's at Eglin AFB. He thought it was strange to pull guard duty on a 15' square chainlink area with a propane tank inside.

I have seen a poster in a store that advertises a drink called "Whup ass". Why doesn't someone mail those posters to our military, so they can be attached to a Commando Vault.

Top photo looks like circa RVN? Why else would they be wearing jungle boots, slant pockets, and the double-banded wrist watch. I wonder if the second photo has a run through the photoshop wash bath.

The Tomahawks on the lower fuselage look pretty legit. Benjamin

On Oct. 1, 1993, the 917th Fighter Wing saw important changes once again. The 46th Fighter Training Squadron was deactivated when the active-duty Air Force took control of all fighter replacement training. On this same day, the 917th became the first unit in Air Force Reserve history to acquire a strategic mission: B-52s were added to the wing make-up and the 93rd Bomb Squadron was activated. Now a composite wing, the 917th dropped "Fighter" from its name and became the 917th Wing

I took this quote off 917th website. I would say it is probably legit. Benjamin

I heard somewhere that it only costs $20,000 to put one of these on the ground. If it was up to me, they would be falling like hail on Afghanistan.
