One Proud Papa

So glad I found this podcast! My son is currently a US Marine in his final months of advanced fighter pilot training right now. He is stationed in Kingsville, Texas..... and will likely graduate at the end of May 2019.

Your podcast has been a great listen, as I try to learn all I can about what my son is doing and experiencing. Thanks for giving us civilians an inside seat to the world of fighter pilots and what they do and go thru!

I use to think I had a cool job, until I realized how awesome it must be for those good and lucky enough to protect us flying the skies.

Thanks to all who serve us, past and present......🇺🇸

Leadership, Bravery & Excellence

This is likely the closest many of us will get to experiencing what it’s like to be a fighter pilot. Jell-O’s expertise, attention to detail, and dedication are evident in every episode. He keeps an ear out for us civilian listeners, and breaks down military lingo and processes into anecdotes that are easy to comprehend.

Each episode features a guest that is a subject matter expert, and each have incredible stories to tell.

Jell-O, thank you for your service, and thank you for this podcast.

If you’re a fan on any kind of aviation this is a must listen.

Jello and Sunshine are amazing hosts and know a lot about contemporary combat aviation. The 80s-Top-Gun-loving-kid, in me, geeks out every time a new episode drops.

Thanks for taking the time to put this together guys. I love your work.

Also, great news on the team-up with Jabbers. I hope that you two can find some time to explore the DCS community.
