Smith is a plane captain with Marine Attack Squadron 311, Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 165 (Reinforced), 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit (Special Operations Capable. "The pride that goes along with being a plane captain and being responsible for a multi-million dollar aircraft that is flying missions here in Iraq is the best part about this job," said McQuilkin, a 35-year-old Lufkin, Texas, native. "When a new join arrives at our squadron and is interested in becoming a plane captain, he has to learn about all of the parts on the plane. After that, he goes through a selection board with five members who judge him. If he can't answer the questions asked or show confidence in his answers, he doesn't become a plane captain."

Rick Crook
Rick Crook Class of 1969
Army, 14 Years
I was drafted into US Army in January 1971, during the end of the Vietnam War. I spent my 14 years in Ordnance maintenance support. Although I never served in any combat zones I had the privilege and honor of serving with those who had gone into combat. The disrespect that was given to me and my brothers & sisters from by certain liberal fascists groups was so bad it made me sick. I pray we as a people never forget those who put their lives on the line so we can enjoy our freedom. I left the Army as a Sergean First Class with a Honorable Discharge. It makes me very proud to see the young men and woman stepping up to plate to protect our great nation. Note: I was trained to fight Communism, do you think that the direspect that was given to our military may have something to do with the liberal professors training our children to fight against our military?
