The worst wildfire season is being predicted for this year and we have Obama's sequester cutting two of the C-130s that are needed to fight those fires. Stupid Washington politics once again.

BHO thinks a spray unit is something to disperse nose candy. An aerial unit is that which delivers nose candy to the limo...a mini drone disguised as a butterfly.

I'm sure that the 910th will survive this. AThis base has been there a very long time thanks to the support of the Mahoning Valley. I served with the 910th for 6yrs before going to Dover AFB, DE.

Did you ever hear when a snowstorm or even the projection of bad weather is to hit Washington DC, the reporters say that all NON ESSENTIAL employees are to stay home? Wait...if they are NON ESSENTIAL, why do they have a government job?? Just get rid of them now and keep the jobs that actually do something, i.e. air traffic controllers. Sequester solved!
