    Horrible. God Bless those Marines.
    Listen to me now, and believe me later: it doesn't matter how much you pump up those muscles, as long as you reach the full pumptential.

    It's not 'roids but thanks for noticing...

    Marines use their KC-130 for Ground Support missions as well.. kind of cranks up the risk/ danger a little. Doing what A-10s do full of thousands of gallons of fuel.. in an unarmored cargo plane.. Balls of Steel

    Haven't seen anyone know if this was a J or T?

    Don't know if this will shed any light on the subject, but I was surely unaware of so many variations. It is one workhorse of the military, for sure.
