From General Frank J. Grass: I salute Spc. Alek Skarlatos, Oregon National Guard - Oregon Military Department, for your extraordinary actions, along with a United States Air Force member and American and French civilians, in averting a potential terrorist massacre on that high speed train in Europe on Friday... I am so proud of you.

Always Ready, Always There. Go California National Guard!
It's an uphill battle for fire crews on the "Rocky Fire" but many of them are now getting a little extra help from above. New aircraft are moving in, armed with thousands of gallons of retardant. Two C-130s from the California Air National Guard arrived at McClellan Air Park on Friday. They're both outfitted with the so-called MAFF system- the modular airborne firefighting system.

Always good to see the National Guard in the fire flight fight.
C 130's must be in the top ten, five, three aircraft of all time. Orville and Wilbur at #1.
