My trials, tribulations, and experiences through the Air Force via the US Navy in Pensacola, FL,
Vance AFB in Enid, OK, and in the Herc at Little Rock AFB in Arkansas.

So, I didn't end up flying the other day. I started to feel a sore throat coming on the night before and sure enough, when I woke up, I had caught something. Oh well, I still went into to brief my on-wing but I did not fly. Went to see the flight surgeon (doctor) after and he said I could not valsalva (pop your ears) properly so he put me med down. Hopefully, tomorrow, I will be able to get cleared medically so I can fly on Friday, but I'm not counting on it right now. This is one funny thing I have already learned about flying. I am by no means terrible sick, but because I am not 100% I can not fly. No toughing it out here, because a. it is not safe and b. it would not be a quality flight so why waste the time.
I am an Air Force pilot flying the mighty C-130 in Little Rock, Arkansas. I am a southern California boy who desperately misses the ocean, but God is giving the opportunity to spread my wings in other places. It should be good times that I'll share with you.
