As much as I slam the "fly guys" of the Corps, one thing is certain. They're Marines...and they're getting the job done.
One of the untold stories of the conflicts that we're involved in that will only come out in Marine history journals is the work done with regards to the Tactical Recovery of Aircraft and Personnel (TRAP) Missions that these Marines have performed.
I would be curious to know how many millions of dollars have been saved because these Marines were able to recover downed aircraft instead of destroying them in place.
Close air support.
Special Ops work.
The list goes on. I hammer the wing like a big brother hammers a little brother. Its done with love, its probably unfair and its fun for the big brother and annoys the hell outta the little one.
Well consider this post the "apology" to the wing.
You guys are doing good work.
Stay safe and Semper Fi.
