God Bless our Military...
Great young pilot from PA. Outstanding job !!!
Can you beat this?
Can't add anything else to this one ... A picture is worth 10,000words !
If you don't think our military pilots earn their pay ... you need to take a look at this picture ... and then look again and realize what you're seeing...
This photo was taken by a soldier in Afghanistan of a helo rescue mission. The pilot is a PA National Guard guy who flies EMS choppers in civilian life.
Now, how many people on the planet you reckon could set the ass-end of a chopper down on the roof top of a shack on a steep mountain cliff and hold it there while soldiers load wounded men in the rear?
If this does not impress you ... nothing ever will.
Gives me the chills and a serious case of the vertigo ... I can't even imagine having the nerve ... much less the talent and ability
God Bless our military.

I would say that he earned his paycheck that day.

A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.
It enriches those who receive it,without making poorer those who give.It takes but a moment, but the memoryof it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that hecan get along without it,and none is so poor but thathe can be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home,fosters goodwill in business,and is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary,cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,or stolen, for it is something that is of novalue to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.Give them one of yours, as none needs a smileso much as he who has no more to give.

and they need to be paid more..

We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion
