Im alfor developing Tech- However the Military and congress allow private companies to wring out every dollar to thier share holders.

WW2 Congress told manufactures that good money will be paid for results. Now Congress pays good money to who ever gives them the most votes/campaign funds.

Realistically we should have something that far outclasses the F22 if the russians have something thats compareable. Also The chinese have way more ability to cripple America economically rather than all out war.

We also should have a good space program. With space tech ground tech grows exponetially. But its not as profitable.

My big beef is the expense of personnel and good judgement has led to the AF sucking its own wind hoping congress will bail it out for its own stupidity. The only reason the AF remains a solid fighting force is the Enlisted men and women who despite horride General officers continue to do thier job. *Pilots also do awesome*.

I see they elected to make Cannon SOC- Abandon all hope! lol Ever been stationed elsewhere?

I was only able to go to Biloxi, Osan, Elmenorf, Baghdad, Kuwait and soon to be Baghram.

I left AD for the Guard and found that we end up doing 50% of AD missions with 1/8th the funding and personnel. However I love it and its renewed my faith in the AF at least with the AK Air Guard.

I have a few friends at Holloman- they hate it. But the friends at Cannon want to kill themselves every day.

This is a really good point, good thing they are just as dependent on us economically as we are on them, just in a different way.

Back on topic, thanks Yuri for the great info. It is really nice to hear from someone who knows something about what is happening "on the ground" with the Military.

Thanks also for all you do! I for one appreciate the sacrifice you make for all of us. Same goes for anyone else in the Military who might be reading this thread.
