Position Papers
The Iceman
Was the Iceman character in the movie Top Gun really inspired by the calm and cool attitude exhibited by Air Force Major Kenneth Hughey during his 564 combat missions?
The best bench officer I have ever known is my Father. As I was growing up, my father was a country magistrate. His bench was sometimes a 500 gallon kerosene tank welded onto sled-like runners and parked in our yard.
