    When you headbutt a comm antenna on a jet, the antenna will usually win. I learned this after a 2" gash and 7 stitches in the forehead yesterday.

    Bent over to pick up a cord and POW! Blood all over my uniform and boots after that :eek:

    Yes, but I've got to get 'em off a computer at work. I'll have to post 'em on my next day off in 5 days.

    Brutal! That needs to be immortalized in TUT.

    I know head wounds... 13 stitches in the forehead from being flung into the corner of a wall.

    Thanks for your service, return home soon!

    :cheers:

    Spook50 - what's your AFSC? All I'm getting is a red X so I'm not sure what you're up to. I'm an F-15 Crew Chief in the OR ANG. Thanks for your Active Duty Service!

    I'm a crew chief as well, on the KC-135s. Since I just got my line number for Staff they're pushing me into my 7-level training as fast as they can (so they can deploy me even MORE! yay!), and it's really putting me into a sour state of mind towards being a crew chief.

    Tanker in the air, management took the credit for it!
