    And these fools @ the pentagon want to mothball this beauty? They're out of their fkn minds. One of the only good things John McCain has done is fight to keep them active, to provide close air support for the people on the battle field. Pentagon brass should ask the people on the ground how they feel before they decide on their welfare and flying here at Davis Monthan AFB.
