You’re SURE this is the air force?
I’m embarrassed for these guys. The photo captions say they are in the Air Force, and are displaying their “skills.”
But here’s a tip. If you find yourself slithering along the dusty ground with a bayonet on the end of your rifle, you may have joined the WRONG Air Force! There’s a chance you got drunk and signed up for that other branch, Dudes Who Crawl Along With Bayonets Until They are Strafed by the Air Force.
By definition, guys in the Air Force are supposed to see the enemy from way high up in the sky, not from the end of a bayonet.
I’ll go further. Any organization that defines using a bayonet as a “skill” probably isn’t where you want to spend your life. I know that will get me in trouble with the Bayonet Jugglers and Snake Handlers Union, but I have to call ‘em as I see ‘em.
