Quotes

"This is our first year in the industry of flying C-130s," Archer said. "We're so new at the game that we're trying to snatch up every training opportunity we can. Our pilots pick up different missions constantly, whether it's moving Army troops from one place to a second location or for the Army to redeploy."
"We're taking all the necessary steps and implementing protocols to minimize potential risks to any and all personnel when called to support the [Operation United Assistance] mission" said Col. Michael Grismer, 436th Airlift WingWing commander
"You can't be a pilot or part of any aspect of aviation if you don't lead a good life," said Jones. "We push the character aspect of things just like the big organizations, like the Boy Scouts or the Boys and Girls club. If you give kids constructive things to do, they'll lead a constructive life afterwards."
"So we don't expect to have similar rules for our military as we do for civilians. They (service members) are already, by definition, if they're in the military, under more circumscribed conditions" Obama said
