He was a darn good pilot but so was the German.

Great post. Very touching. No metro-sexual here!
That must have been an amazing sight to witness for anyone on the ground; with the added excitement of dodging .50 caliber machine gun fire.
amazing 23 year old man....I have 2 grandsons, 21, and 27, and they can’t get out of bed in the morning....
I have friends that has the same problem with a 27 year old she coddled as a child and helicopter parented. It seriously ruined him for life.
I have a friend that has the same problem with a 27 year old she coddled as a child and helicopter parented. It seriously ruined him for life. He’s an Obama supporter and has a kid that is living with his mother that he has never seen. He’s going to ourt for unpaid child support soon so the sucker may end up in jail. I hope so. He needs to grow up and having to watch your backside with Obama’s feral brothers watching might make him grow up.
