> I was no in the hole, I was support. Yeah, it sucked for everybody.
shrug -- I'm out of touch with Fox News, too, but I don't denigrate them with fake "shipmate" camaraderie. The factual errors remain, as does my recommendation for readers of slashdot to look to other sources for a more rounded view.
I was a Minuteman Missile Combat Crew Member back in the 70s, and I want to alert you that there are factual errors in the story about alert shifts and the like. I should also point out that Bruce Blair, as it says in the article, is anti-nuclear missile. I've read comments by him for a long time, and he has his opinion, but I don't agree with him much of the time. I would suggest finding additional articles and commentary by additional people to get a more nearly rounded view of the situation for Missile Combat Crews.
Isn't that aggravating? The holes are from 1/2 to 1/10 as massive. You _can't_ be 2 times less or 10 times less. Sheesh!
