Razorback A-10s

This afternoon I got to hang out on Razorback Range with my pals at the 188th.

A 2-ship sprayed targets with the Gatling guns, dropped phosphorous bombs, and avoided “Smoky Sams” (simulated ground missiles).

It was a media event in honor of the unit’s return to the resumption of regular flight training, following the transition from F-16s to A-10s this year.

Until the media organizations get their stories published, posted, and aired, I’ll settle with catching up on a recent Times Record story profiling my friend Col. Thomas Anderson, who is Vice-Commander at the 188th. 

Congratulations to the men and women of the 188th — your work year in and year out proved to the BRAC Commission 2 years ago that our nation is safer with “iron on the ramp” in Fort Smith, Arkansas.
