Tomcat tribute

Here is the Navy Times tribute to the F-14 Tomcat.  An interesting piece of information that helps us understand why the plane is no longer a carrier craft was that it takes 18 hours of maintenance for every hour of flight.  I’d like to know how that compares to the Hornet.

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on: www.robreider.com
