Spectre Knows Chain of Command

A gunship buddy of mine took this photo at the 16th Special Operations Squadron.  What an outstanding display, and airmen in other squadrons would do well to heed the example of these Ghostriders.

We all in public service, but most importantly those of us who wield lethality, should be reminded where the ultimate authority comes from in our system of government that we the people created and commissioned.  It's vitally important that we get it right.

Well done brothers-and-sisters in arms, thanks for the reminder.
