I once walked off the back of one of those at 3,000 feet. I liked them.

I enjoyed when they would open up the floor....great views....Going full speed ahead 50' off the deck down the Canal was a blast, too....

That does sound fun. Strapped in the back if a Blackhawk with the doors open and flying treetop level, and even dodging some trees, while going full speed was a great ride. Not everyone can keep their lunch down in a ride like that. Roller Coasters are not as much fun after that. Helicopters are fun.

It’s all good until they start shouting at you. Then you wish you were somewhere else.

Looks like you were enjoying the military life! So did I. (mostly) 8)
Have you hugged your rifle today?

Mostly...me too. I like to say I was in the Army for 20 years then I retired and had to get a job. :lol:
