The men in uniform are the ones are the "real men" of this country, ( USAF )who are willing to die for this country, not the beauocrats in Washington, just looking for another phony excuse to get our men killed. Just like Viet Nam, Iraq and Afghanistan, were perpetrated, to once again demonstrate, America's "never ending appetite" for making unnecessary war.

The " men " in Washington, need to be held accountable, to all those men who died on vain !

I came across the article "Give the Navy Guy the Air Force Cross" today and wanted to thank you for making this available to the public. I was tremendously proud to read about the mission and the advocacy by Gary Barnhill to award the Air Force Cross. Even though that award didn't happen, this account provided more details about that mission than I'd ever heard before. This is especially meaningful to me since Trent Powers is my father. I'll cherish including this account in my files and passing this on to his grandchildren. Best regards,
Alice (Powers) Tarpley, Colonel, USAF, Retired

I served (in the same office) with then Capt. John Stell with the 4th Tactical Fighter Wing at Seymour Johnson AFB in the mid to late 60s.

He was one of the finest men I ever met. I would love to see him again.

What a great story and well written, Capt Tullo!

Great idea, giving the AFC to LDCR Powers. I'm sure, however, that the Navy wanted that one for themselves.

F-105's, F-104's! Sleek & fast, very fast!

Hope you're enjoying retirement, Capt Tullo. I am.
