We will not be holding any contest for the near future, thanks for participating
This month's winner:
Mark resides in the Houston area and is a member of the now defunct 111 Fighter Squadron. Unfortunately, for Mark, the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) retired the F-16s he had been flying, and left the unit with the aircraft of the future, the MQ-1 Predator. The MQ-1 Predator is an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), which though it will save lives, has put Mark and a lot of other Air Force pilots out of a job.
His next job for the Air Force will be as an instructor pilot in the T-38, teaching new recruits at Undergraduate Pilot Training.
Mark served two combat deployments with his unit in Iraq, and served for years in Houston as an Air Sovereignty Alert pilot.
He is a native Texan. Grew up in the small rural town of Columbus, TX, attended the University of Texas in Austin, and married a fellow Longhorn. They have three children.
Mark's hobbies include hunting, shooting, ranching and reading. He says he is currently on a CIA and Special Forces kick.
