I cannot say enough about this VA! The attention given to individual pilots, the comrodery, it’s all about the relationships you make, the bonds created when birds of a feather flock together. Loyalty abounds, as far as I’m concerned, this will be the only VA I’ll ever be in! Much love to all my brothers in the 57th! See y’all up there!
