Abstract:

"The story in this book is a true account of my life and mission as the Command Chief Master Sergeant for the 333d Air Expeditionary Wing, Balad Air Base in Iraq from July 2006 through July 2007 ... The stories in this book reflect a true personal accounting of my year in Iraq from 4 July 2006 through 4 July 2007. Records reflect that the worst 12 months of Operation Iraqi Freedom were June 2006 to Jun 2007. That means 11 of our 12 months on this tour were completed during the worst period of this war (the peak of war) ... During the period of this story, our daily missions included escorting convoys on the ground, tracking insurgent fighters, and responding to reports of hostile activities ... we did not face an enemy in the air, and we had not faced a formidable enemy in the air for quite some time. However, the wing and its Airmen were charged with specific objectives to accomplish. Behind the flying operation, there were many Airmen who maintained aircraft, fueled the jets, provided intelligence support, weather data, life support, and an entire host of medical and mission support functions ... We flew C-130 and C-17 cargo aircraft, HH-60 Pavehawk helicopters for rescue missions, F-16 and A-10 fighter jets and even the Predator, unmanned aerial vehicles for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance. Unlike most previous conflicts, the Air Force had also been given the mission of supporting US Army and Marine forces with direct support through the 'in-lieu-of' (ILO) tasking process ... A huge part of my story includes the time and energy that I spent with the ILO forces"--Pages vii-xii.
