New AF squadrons

The United States Air Force has established two new aircraft
squadrons to support President Obama's travel needs during the campaign season.

The 305th and 306th Expeditionary Airlift Squadrons were activated

as subordinate units of the 89th Airlift Wing on December 1.

The 305th will operate out of New Castle, DE, with 5 C-130H

medium lift transport aircraft, 8 full sets of aircrew, 60 assigned

maintenance personnel and 12 operations personnel.

The 306th will operate out of Andrews AFB, with 4 C-17 heavy lift
transports, 7 full aircrew, 60 maintenance personnel, and 10
operations personnel will be assigned.

Operations for the two squadrons are to commence in April, and will
run through the election. The aircraft and personnel will be released
back to their original units after Nov. 2. Well, isn't that nice of him?

NOTE: Considering his disdain for the military forces of America , this

is truly incredible! And why doesn't the Democratic National Committee

pay for at least part of Obama's campaign expenses? Furthermore, since

Obama has already accumulated countless millions of dollars to support

his campaign, why doesn't the SOB use those funds for campaign travels?

Ignore this or pass it on to others. My colleagues and I are taking action!

We're passing this information to everyone we know, and we plan to file

complaints with the news media and every proper member of Congress!

Regardless of your political affiliation or personal opinions, this man has

no right to have ALL American taxpayers pay for his campaign expenses!

This is factual. Read it yourself:

I can live with just about anything.. but boy i hate to see that "flip" salute.. If you remember he didn't do it for the first couple of months.. What bothers me is you KNOW he practised it hundreds of times in front of the mirror.. This is only the second POTUS with out past military in our life time (defined as the last 50 years) least i think thats the case.. Not possitive on this, but i think Clinton was the only other pres to not wear the uniform.. Since the position is Commander and Chief, i'm not so sure that military service shouldn't be a requirement.. Anybody else have thoughts on this..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

Military Presidents

Okay from "W" backwards these are the Presidents who served and what branch they served in:

George W. Bush- Air Force (1st Lt)
George HW Bush- Navy (LT JG)
Ronald Reagan- Army (Captain)
Jimmy Carter- Navy (LT)
Gerald Ford- Navy (LtCdr.)
Richard Nixon- Navy (LtCdr.)
Lydon Johnson- Navy (LtCdr.)
John F. Kennedy- Navy (LT)
Dwight Eisenhower- Army (General of the Army)
Harry Truman- Army (Colonel)

After Teddy Roosevelt (Colonel, Army) none of the next 6 "Commanders in Chief" had any military experience, after that the next 9 in a row did though.
