I just wanted to extend a welcome and a "thank you" to any current or former Air Force Academy men or women visiting our board. As the holiday season arrives, and the Zags set to take on the Falcons, I want to extend my gratitude to the courageous individuals visiting our campus today and to all service men and women across the country and around the world.

The dedication of any D1 scholar/athlete is impressive...to add on military training and service is quite incredible. I'm sure that it goes without saying, but I hope the Kennel Club and MAC fans provide the team with the welcome they deserve. I went the the Notre Dame - Navy game last year and was very impressed with the way the Irish fans treated their rivals. This is an opponent that truly deserves the utmost of respect.

Go Zags!

As an old Army vet, I say BS! I love the smell of smoking zoomies!

My (long since deactivated) battalion in Germany was responsible for the short range air defense of 3 AF bases. We had a friendly interservice rivalry with them...sometimes, it wasn't so friendly. :lmao:

An old joke, in the days before debit cards and other electronic transactions:

What's the difference between being in the Air Force and being on welfare?

A. When you're on welfare, you have to go get your check.

Seriously, though, it was a great experience, and our fighter pilots are bad a$$.
