Quotes

...Instead of funding continued operation like the Senate, however, the House bill prohibits the Pentagon from spending any money to "divest, retire, transfer or place in storage, or prepare to divest, retire, transfer or place in storage any A-10 aircraft."
"I'm going to be flying MQ-1s," he said. "When I was a squadron commander at Creech Air Force Base, Nev., I flew MQ-1s operationally. So I'm really excited to see the training side of the house here. After about a month of getting out to the wing and seeing all the different organizations and seeing the great work that the folks are doing, I'll get a chance to start flying and be a part of the flying operations here as well."
"The traditional home of the 'Hog' here at (Davis-Monthan AFB) has really been blessed to host Hawgsmoke this year" said Col. Kevin Blanchard, the 355th FW commander
...There are those who disagree in the Pentagon," said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., who chairs the defense appropriation subcommittee. "I will tell you in the Senate support among members is very strong."
