I am glad to hear that it has been reinstated and I think that more of these activities among airmen in general would be valuable in affirming that while we have different roles from our fellow troops, I refuse to adopt the current parlance of members as whenever Congress is told how many troops America has in theatre airmen are included in the count. We are nonetheless part of the U.S. military and not some sort of uniformed flying club.
