Hard to belive they mothballed the F117 stealth

Many people dont realize development on this started in the late 60's and the technology was based upon 1970's tech. It was designed to defeat Soviet Air search radars. They have newer and better ones now that its not nearly as effective with, plus we have better assets as well.

A lot of the development was done at Area 51. Bunch of info on the declassified stuff thats been released about Area 51 in the last few years.

Mine looks Mexican. What are the chances that she gets deported? And are the chances better if I turn her in myself?

In my opinion, if you design a combat aircraft that lasts long enough to qualify for Social Security, you should get some kind of award. B-52 should go on an Engineering Marvel list.

Maybe your grandfather, if you consider the design process. The initial concept goes back to just after the end of WWII.

gets dragged kicking & screaming to provide ground support


Not so sure what you mean here, but I have to respectfully disagree. The Air Force has ground troops, who will gladly provide support. They have Security Forces, who provide base security, munition security, etc. Security Force Ravens, who provide security for aircraft and crew in Hostile environments outside of secure bases.

Tactical Patrol units, also known as Tac-P. Tac-p are ground commanders best friends. They advise
ground commanders of what air support is available and call in for the support and guide pilots into the correct areas. They are well trained and are embedded with many other forces.

Air Force Pararescue Also know as PJ's and they are not well known but they are badass. In a quick nutshell they are called in to rescue downed pilots and any other distressed unit.

Lastly, Combat controllers. These teams are also highly trained and provide the basic same services Tac-p's do except they are embedded with Navy Seal teams and other Special forces units.

I served as Security Force Raven and Tac-P. I have respect for all branches and think it is amazing how well trained our forces are.

Any dickhole Marine who tries to imply superiority over the Army needs to be clocked cold hard in the face. The Army is the largest branch by a country mile and does most of the grunt/leg -work. I can't fricking stand Marines. And with regards to special ops, Delta and SEALS are probably the most covert, and what you'd think of when you think special-ops. Rangers are simmilar but work in slightly larger units, and then there's green berets which contrary to popular belief are not in the least more elite than rangers, serve completely different functions - Rangers, more of raids and such. SF is more of training foreign units/militias in rebel guerilla warfare.

Aside from the joke at the end, this is a pretty accurate statement.

The navy handles a lot of the long range logistics, oh and give the marines a ride.
