My first thought was, "Linc, are they talking about you?"

No, we did Mosul last time. It was much quieter then. I'd pretty much have to die to get a medal anyways. My luck doesn't work out like that.

For this gull, though, it was not eating that mattered, but flight. More than anything else. Jonathan Livingston Seagull loved to fly.

Linc,

When were you in Mosul? I was there with 172d SBCT in OIF 5-6 and worked with attack aviation often.

I believe we were the replacements for 1/25. Those were the days were there was actually a job for me, nowdays not so much! Oh well...I hope to begin flying before the end of the year!
