GMAFB! Do we have "friendly fire" incidents reported from the
Revolutionary War? Really?


Certainly multiple reports from Waterloo, cited in Keegan's "The Face of
Battle": the Colonel of the 23rd Light Dragoons was reported as saying
"it's always the case, we always lose more men by our own people than we
do by the enemy" (this after his horse was shot dead under him by troops
of the 52nd Infantry), and there were several nasty fratricides as the
Prussian troops arrived.

I spent an entire morning hearing the oft repeated acronym OBE. At lunch I
had
to ask what the hell it meant. Out of 6 guys, only 1 knew.


Overcome By Events.

Al Minyard


Yep, the 1 out of 6 of us clued the rest in. To this day I haven't felt the
need to use that acronym.

Why such animosity to the BUFF? Ordnance load envy ?

I only posted the Falcon code--didn't write it and didn't go to the
trade school.


I was just bustin' your chops anyway Ed, us BUFF guys have pretty thick skin.

Have only the greatest respect for BUFF drivers since 18
December 1972. (Before then there were some credibility issues.)


Which I was unaware of until I read Michels "11 Days of Christmas", although it
seems unfair to target the aircrew for these "credibility issues"; the orders
came directly from SAC.

BTW, I specifically asked my friend his crew position and he said "Radar
Nav".
When I recounted to him that I had been told he would take offense at "BN"
he
looked some what quizzical, shrugged and said "No." "That's what I was, a
Radar
Navigator Bombardier."

One other note of interest to old threads: he told me his experience with
Hound
Dogs was aboard E models.

The credibility was regarding the tactical forces doing the deep
strike strategic mission (and suffering 40% or higher losses for
months on end) while the strategic force was doing no-threat tactical
bomb drops in tactical support roles.


I fail to see how this is a credibility issue, the BUFF crews simply did as
they were told. During OAF the B-1s weren't "allowed" to hit targets in
downtown Belgrade while us BUFF guys went there daily (mostly at night, but not
always). From our perspective it wasn't a credibility issue, the B-1 guys were
as frustrated as we were proud.

Everyone around BUFFs should be familiar with
the heritage that was forged during those eleven days.


The problem is Ed, the heritage tought by USAF PME is inaccurate and in some
cases blatently untrue. "The 11 Days of Christmas" is a book circulating
through the BUFF community, hopefully most crewmembers will get a chance to
read it.

He's much more laid back then other Radar vets I've met. The term "BN" is short
for Bombardier Navigator, which depending on airframe could imply the job
description of operating the bombing radar, but not always. Seems the guys I've
met try to seperate themselves from non-Radar bombing types. Current RN's don't
really seem to care either way, at least most don't.
