Reflecting over the events of 9 Sep 2005

Well 9 Sep 05 was a very special day to me.

A crowd of us were standing in front of the hangers looking at the runway, when 2 of our C-130s came screaming by for a flyover. One stays straight and level as the lead banks and climbs to the left.

The lead aircraft flew around and landed.

As soon as the aircraft was clear of the active runway and was turning down the taxiway to the hangers, you see to people poke thier heads out the forward escape hatch. One is holding an American flag.

The C-130 turns to face the ISO Dock hanger and stops. Engines are just down. Then the crew door opens. Airmen just start piling off as fast as they can.

These Airmen that are climbing off the aircraft are quickly rushing to their family members that are waiting with arms wide open. As the last man steps off the aircraft it hits me. The last of our guys and our aircraft from the Desert are home.

2 years of deployments to combat zones. NOT one casualty has been suffered by the 908th. November the unit officially gets demobilized. However many of us, like myself volunteered to stay longer. I will be here as long as it takes to get the job done. (unless I go Active Duty sooner)

click the video under #1

only bad thing about the video is the end of it. We are now currently supporting relief efforts of Hurricane Katrina. We have several aircraft running supplies and people back and forth. Also we have some of our SPs down their in Keesler AFB, MS. And the unit has 90 days to return to their civlian jobs when the demob orders come through in Nov.

woot, good feeling that everyone made it home from deployment in one piece, I dont have to worry about deployments for about 3 1/2 years since I am going to shore duty.
