    Heh! The holes remind me of an old car I had. (I loved that car )

    That's an impressive score, painted on the side.

    Nice shots! I saw the first set a while back, but the second set I had not seen before. The A-10 original name was the Thunderbolt II. Fitting since the P-47 was about as rugged.

    And no one mentions that the first one has a helicopter kill...
    "When you go home tomorrow, don't expect anyone to know what you have been through. Even if they did know, most people probably wouldn't care anyway. Some of you may get the medals you deserve, many more of you will not. But remember this, all of you are now members of the front-line club, and that is the most exclusive club in the world." - Lt. Col. Matthew Maer CO 1st Battalion, the Princess of Wale's Royal Regiment. Camp Abu Naji, Oct. 2004

    To those in that club.
