Re-Up In Style

Diaz & Capt

Yesterday, Diaz re-enlisted for another four years in the Air Force. He asked Captain Joo, who came with us from Italy and is one of the coolest people I know, to do the honours. Captain made arrangements to do it out on the B-1 ramp, and the whole shop went out to watch. It was pretty cool.

And of course, given the opportunity, the rest of us had to take advantage of the photo op.

SMSgt Cundy, the representative from the bomber squadron, gave us a quick tour of the plane and let us sign bombs. I opted out, as it kinda seems like adding insult to injury.

After that, he took us out to the perch to watch a B-1 take off. Unfortunately, it had a maintenance issue, so we just got to see it taxi; however, we got to see another one land, which was pretty amazing.

Seeing another side of the Air Force was really interesting. I think all the guys had a good time, and I was glad we could all go out and support Diaz.
