One for Laxsaltman: DFC Awarded to A-10 Pilot



“It’s an honor to be awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross with Valor for doing the job I’m trained to do.”

Via Exurbanleague, an Arizona blog, comes this tid-bit of the sort of casual courage to which I aspire, and also a nice Thunderbolt story for Laxsaltman, once he can tear his eyes away from the 30mm Gatling-gun type cannon in the photo:
"The real reward was returning those six coalition soldiers safely to the village they were working at as part of the provincial reconstruction team"
