Our Men On the Ground Say Victory Is In the Air!
447th Expeditionary Operations Support Squadron Sather AB, Baghdad Int'l Airport
Victory Is In the Air!
TAZZ: Rush, it's an honor to speak with you. Thank you.
RUSH: Now, what is it, Tazz, that you wanted to tell everybody? Let me say this. The e-mails that I get from you are constantly describing victory. You're describing great success in what you're doing. Are you directly involved in the so-called surge with your Air Force guys?
TAZZ: Absolutely, Rush. The Air Force has been surging to, you know, conduct our combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, and we're doing one heck of a great job. It's inspiring, Rush, to see the looks on these airmen and these soldiers' faces when you're out there with them, working with them every day, and it's not just Americans.
The three-two Georgian Brigade out there in Iraq is doing just a great job, and the Iraqi army themselves, I had personal experience with. Rush, if you see it on their faces, it's inspiring, and some people may think, "You know, we've been at this war for so long right now." People just want to throw in the towel and, you know, hang up their efforts and just go home, but not so.
Victory is in the air. These guys are working hard, the airmen are flying every day, 24/7, you name it. You mentioned Sluggo, my friend, my close personal friend. We're out here, Rush. We're taking it to the enemy, and it's an honor and a privilege to do this on behalf of the American people.
