16, American, mixed-race, AFJROTC (FL-031 TOP GUNS Baby!). Fighter planes, fast cars, Florida, and a sport or two to mix things up. Most of these pictures aren't mine, and the few that are are kinda shitty so use them whenever.
U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Sean Meehan (left) and Staff Sgt. Kane Lawlor (right) provide cover after a tactical air insertion by a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter from the New Jersey Army National Guard’s 1-150 Assault Helicopter Battalion on April 10, 2014 at Fort Dix, N.J. The New Jersey Army and Air National Guardsmen took part in a joint training exercise with the U.S. Marine Corps. Meehan and Lawlor are both tactical air control party airmen from the New Jersey Air National Guard’s 227th Air Support Operations Squadron. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Tech. Sgt. Matt Hecht)
An Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) TACP (Tactical Air Control Party) JTAC (Joint Terminal Attack Controller) pictured while on an exercise with other AFSOC forces. Note the M4A1 with M203 grenade launcher carried by the special operator.
TACPs with AFSOC Special Tactics Squadrons and the 17th Air Support Operations Squadron deploy with special operations forces in order to provide terminal attack control and fire support expertise. Acting as the bridge between special ops on the ground and fire power in the air, TACPs play a vital role in operations.
Gotta show TACP some love since I tested for this first before CCT.
Probably one of the more famous fighter squadrons out there, the VF-84 Jolly Rogers. They have since been established, but the squadron VFA-103 ‘Sluggers’ adopted the name and insignia. Here we see the famous log on the tail of an F-14 Tomcat, perhaps one of their more famous mounts. (Photo)
This picture humbled me the moment I laid eyes on it. Here is a Combat Controller, one of the most elite, hardcore airmen there are, mourning the loss of his friend. In every one of those caskets you see, someones son, daughter, brother, sister, or friend is lying in there. Rest in peace, warrior.
