"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

Tigers,

Just so you know,I'm kind of leaning towards the 27th;I'm hoping to get A decent showing not only from the raven air wing,but the raven MARDET as well.

You gentlemen take heed and listen to the Major. When He is here he is always the the Leader of the Flying Tigers. The Major has seen and been through a lot and is the reason the Fire Fox is so effective.

Welcome Ens Hellpop, It's also great to have a Spartan Viper Jock in our ranks as well Ouu, Ouu, Ouu!!! Beware though, us Tigers prefer the Mk-II over the VII. Especially since our birds are armed with the secret weapon system code name: FireFox!

SO SAY WE ALL!!!!!

Comment by Maj. Roger "Reamer" Barstow on August 15, 2017 at 11:57am

Welcome aboard Ens. Gizmo!!! It's great to have another dedicated Raptor Wrangler at the stick of a Viper, especially a Camo Flying Tigers Mk-II.

As I'm sure you've noticed, many FT Pilots are also members of the Seekers because we love to fly just about anything we can get our Amborsia sticky hands on the controls!!!

SO SAY WE ALL!!!!!

I would like to make it on either day but cannot guarantee that I will be able to.
Comment by Captain Eric "Hitman" Morelli on August 15, 2017 at 8:08am

Real life is always going to come first. It is what allows us to do what we do here Gizmo. 

Comment by Ens Keith "GIZMO" Steinhurst on August 14, 2017 at 2:42pm

CAG, 20th or 27th works for me - I apologize for being radio silent, though I have been following on FB.  I have the last month been at Ft. Leavenworth for a course, and may get to go back for a year - just think - a potential 'Jedi Knight' . . .  Anyway, GIZMO requests permission to join formation, echelon right . . .

Comment by Captain Eric "Hitman" Morelli on August 14, 2017 at 12:59pm

Please try and sound off on this as well Tigers!

ATTENTION ALL PILOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you plan on participating in the Gunstar Trireme anniversary Op, please contact Col. Keith "Leonidas" Ranson and advise which date would be best for you, either August 20th or 27th.
