Military Men...

As I have said before my heart will forever and always belong to a man in a flight suit. And with that, that means my heart also goes out to all our friends as they come and on go deployments.


Last night we had a great dinner and watched the Packers v. Cardinals game with our friend "Caveman" and his girlfriend.

He is a tanker pilot and is getting deployed this afternoon. He flies a plane that refuels aircraft midair like this...

Pretty cool huh?

The jet that is preparing to be fueled is an F15e, what Mr. Jetplane flies in. He actually got to refuel like this for the first time last week.

Luckily Caveman's deployment is only about 2 months and he'll be back in March. This is his 2nd deployment since moving into this squadron.

Keep Caveman and all the great men and women in your thoughts and prayers.

XOXO

You know, its funny how in our day to day lives we can forget about how important the jobs that our husbands do actually are. Or the people that we know through them. I hope your friend has a short and safe deployment.

Definitly keeping them all thoughts and prayers! My fiancee is about to start UPT this July and is actually interested in flying tankers.
