Babble on.

Do you ever feel sorry for yourself at work? I do. Not often, but whenever I find myself slipping into a one-man pity-party, I think of these guys, and say to myself "YGBSM."

One of the new weasels, EWO Captain Jack Donovan, summed up the feelings of all the Weasels about their new mission, when he said, “ You want me to fly in the back of a little tiny fighter aircraft with a crazy fighter pilot who thinks he’s invincible, home in on a SAM site in North Vietnam, and shoot it before it shoots me, you gotta be shittin' me!”

This is such an insane mission, it makes for fantastic war stories...from those who make it back. Today, Weasels fly the F-16, a fantastic bird for the job. But it still takes a crazy man at the stick.

Some people have more guts than brains. And I mean that in the most complimentary way possible.

My job's really not that bad. I hope you can see yours isn't either.

Babble off.
