USAFA Television Commercial

Postby MajorG1000 on Sun Apr 12, 2015 10:37 pm

I was watching TV in bed the other night when a commercial for the Air Force Academy came on. It was about what you could do with a degree from the USAFA within the Air Force. They showed a brief clip of several career fields from Pilot to Engineer to Doctor. There was even a Clip of a Missileer at a console, and I believe the words "You could command (or launch) a missile". It gave me goose bumps to have our career finally recognized in the "Big Time". Has anyone else seen the commercial yet?
Perhaps there was some real change from of the "scandals" of the past two years. I don't remember any other time where missileers have been touted as a "Career Path" to anyone but ourselves.
I don't feel like the "Redheaded Bastard Stepchild" any more.
