A reader forwards me this pic from AF.mil of the 3rd Air Support Operations Squadron’s Tactical Air Control Party boarding the plane for Iraq:
See the AF.mil story for a high-res version.
The unit will send one group to Iraq for six months, then they will be replaced by a second group.
Notice that not only do the Air Force personnel get the new ACU but that many of them have actually been issued weapons. (Commenters on my earlier post were worried about this.) And there are a few women in the group.
Many thanks to the reader who tipped me off.
