I know there are a lot of military and ex-military people on this board. Specifically, I want to hear from someone who has, or knows the person with the actual, current authority amperage to give the order to get what I want done.
Here’s my thing: I’m a very good helicopter pilot. I’ve flown little, nimble things and big clunky cargo ships. Furthermore I have a genuine gift for instructing. No lie, I graduated 17 qualified pilots in a single year.
Currently, I’m engaged in a type of flying that is more difficult than most, but not strategically necessary. I want to change that.
I want to fly for the war effort, in any capacity. I have no problem flying combat, support, surveillance, or I can teach others to fly and free up someone else.
I don’t require that it be an American service, flying for an ally of the US would be fine, as long as they let American citizens in their military.
But I need someone with enough rank to overrule the age limitation. I’m 40 years old. Not ready for the rest home yet (I compete in international martial arts competitions), and I’m a damnsight tougher than the children that I pass in the hallways here at the airport.
Yes, I know about the age limit. I also know that somewhere this side of Mr. Rumsfeld is a person who can say “Waive it in this instance” and get it done.
If you can help, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are horrified that I might wish to actively engage in supporting a war effort, please keep it to yourself. If you think this is rilly kewl, don’t bother me - I’m on business.
But if you can tell me “Call this person - they’re expecting to hear from you,” and you’re not fucking around, I’d appreciate it.
