    I'll be at USMA this week from Thursday thru Sunday. If anyone needs anything from the Hudson Home for Wayward Youth or will be in the area themselves, let me know!

    I'll miss you by a couple days, Scout. Will be there for March Back and then later in the week for A Day. Looking forward to it all.

    As an aside, my son is in Bravo and was one of the fortunate few to take a spin in one of the visiting Opreys this past weekend. He said they were teased earlier in the week that they might get a surprise on Saturday, and when the CO got them together he told them he had a clue for their surprise. He showed them a video clip of the Osprey. Evidently, a tired (or sarcastic) NC looked at the video and said: "What, we've been traded to the Marines?"

    Still, a cool opportunity. My only question for him was, do Ospreys drip Cherry Juice all over its 'passengers' like the Chinooks did/do?

    Enjoy your visit.

    Not unless he/she is at the Thayer for a scotch!

    In all seriousness, I doubt he/she will. I think it would be improper for me to use my rank/access to have contact with the NCs. This is the time for their cadre to help them finish strong. I won't interfere with that.

    As for the Osprey, CPT Claw, I don't know because I won't go near one of those switchblade deathtraps. If the intelligence barometer for flying those suckers is the USMC and AFSOC, I want nothing to do with it!

    As for the cherry juice...they probably never told you that that's the single most toxic substance in aviation.
