He said the first jet he saw was the F-15E Strike Eagle. Followed on by F-16s and eventually the A-10, all coming out of Kuwait.

OK, it's a great and motivating story but my BS detector is going off in a similar fashion to a few weeks ago when the supposed photos of al Qaeda terrorists being killed by an F-14 in the ground attack mode were being widely circulated via email (the phtots were actually Chechen separatists, probably trained by al Qaeda, killing Russians on a BTR with a command detonated mine back in 1998). Does it strike anyone else (except a Marine who is not an expert on USAF aircraft) as very odd that the story involves USAF aircraft sortieing from Kuwait across several countries and the Indian Ocean to provide CAS? How many times would they nhave to refuel an A-10 in the air just to get it from Kuwait to Afghanistan?
