"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."

After saying hello to his old spartan squadron mates,Cdr. Leonidas runs into Reamer and Hitman:

Well! Good to see you two still functioning! You two need to come visit me and Bunny on the Trireme,when you get the chance;We'll knock over some ambrosia and tell some story!

Comment by Captain Eric "Hitman" Morelli on January 23, 2019 at 3:28pm

Captain Hitman is at the front of the briefing room going over his notes he has to discuss with the Tigers. Frustrated and anxious he hears the door to the briefing room open he looks up and sees his old friend and former CAG Major Reamer. 

MAJOR!!! How the hell are you old friend! So great to see you! Did you see your Viper out there? She's all ready for you anytime you want to take her out. 

Comment by Maj. Roger "Reamer" Barstow on January 23, 2019 at 7:22am

Reamer walks onto the hanger deck with a large cup of hot black coffee, as he slowly sips the black gold he's saluted by the knuckle draggers re-arming the Ravens Vipers. He comes to where the Flying Tigers Mk-II's are being attended to and stops next to his bird. He's saluted by the men loading the 30mm ammo into his wing guns. Reamer returns the salute and says as you were. Then he asks if his guns were cleaned to which they reply, "Yes Sir, they're as clean as a whistle and ready for action, Sir!"

As they began to load the AIM-9000 SRAAM missiles (Code name Firfox) to Reamers bird he asks them to stop for a moment. Reamer reaches into his pocket and pulls out an old polishing cloth and cleans the nose cones of all the missiles, then he allows the men to finish their task.

Reamer turns and walks away as he finishes the last of his now cold black coffee as he enters the squadron briefing room.

***ATTENTION FLYING TIGERS***

As you may have seen on the club's Facebook page, it's time for the Air Wing to dust off the cobwebs and get back to our business of killing toasters! 

PILOTS: Report in and sound off so we can get an accurate count of active pilots!

Squadron Commanders: Get a list of these active pilots, we are currently trying to make a status board with each squadron and their active pilots. Also, remember to recruit your squadron. Welcome the new nuggets so we can fill out the squadrons evenly. We're not going to be able to plan missions and CAPs if we just have 2-3 people to show up at a time. Together we can make the Air Wing proud!

Welcome to the Flying Tigers Squadron Ens. Persianni!!! It's great to have you join our humble band of Cylon Exterminators. Ooooops, sorry, Captain Hitman like to say we're the best Cylon recycling Squadron in the fleet.

Either way you look at it, we're the best at what we do. Our motto say's it best, "We're Flying, They're Dying!!!"

I would also like to congratulate you for earning your Viper Wings. Your next step is to choose an appropriate call sign. People may forget your name, but a good call sign is never forgotten, so choose wisely.

Good Hunting Ensign!!!

SO SAY WE ALL!!!!!
