Let's thank our veterans. They need us right now.

Hey guys. Before I go I wanted to start this one just for recognizing our veterans. I understand not all of us here our from the same countries, but let's give our hats off to them. It can be anybody you know, or don't know. They can be pilots or not. List as many as you want. I hope this one will be made a sticky.

Flying is not dangerous. If you don't trust something that has to be supported by air, stay out of a car unless it has solid tires. And believe me, those kind of tires don't ride good at all.

Hi From Canberra Man.

The Ranks list was minus a very important uniformed person. The Adult Warrant officer, they are sometimes but not always, ex RAF and know all the ropes. I was 30 years with 2292 Market Rasen Squadron and look on my service with pride.
