Ladies Night Over Afghanistan


This is an old favorite of mine. It’s a four-plus years old photo, from the early days of Operation Enduring Freedom, and these gals may no longer be flying KC-135 Stratotankers for refueling fighter-bombers over there. But you can bet that they’re flying aerial gas stations somewhere. It’s a nice illustration of both the all-volunteer military and the 9/11 generation. They are not what you think.
