Snack-down before the Smack-down
Bagram aircrews drop treats to Soldiers on fourth
The Soldiers and Airmen serving out in the remote FOBs (Forward Operating Bases) throughout Afghanistan get crap thrown at them every day from the Taliban, so I'm sure it was nice to get an airdrop full of snacks, good food, and music.
I'm 100% certain the aircrews also threw in a case of beer, some cigars, and a few bottles of Cuervo Gold.
I'm also aware that after dropping the pallets off at the FOBs, the aircraft flew over the known Taliban villages and dropped dozens of inflatable sheep and Maxim magazines.
Sort of a final gesture of kindness before we kick their asses.
