The Battle of Midway may have ended over 75 years ago but there are still aerial dogfights every day out here. I've always thought of red-footed boobies as our "combat air patrol", waiting to intercept any flying fish that show up near the ship. This subadult overshot its target this time.
Jules Winnfield: There's a passage I got memorized. Ezekiel 25:17. "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."... #flyfightwin#viper#f16#aircombat#airforce#unitedstates#newjersey#177thfighterwing#campdavid#combatairpatrol#cap#potus#president
