The Go To Show

Ex-PJ here and I love what these bros are putting out. I’ve known Aaron for years and he’s always been a source of truth, not noise.

Keep sending it fellas!

Informational and entertaining

The amount of information so you can be ahead of the curve when going AFSW is incredible. Onesready team addresses all things SW and if there’s something they don’t know they make sure to host someone who does. If you’re already in the service there’s still so much helpful info to help you just be a better airman and leader. I never miss an episode and definitely repeat more than a handful. #doitforaaron
