    I received this email from a friend and fellow Vet. It is a transcript of a conversation overheard (and given by an undisclosed source) on the VHF Guard (emergency) frequency 121.5 MHz while flying from Europe to Dubai.

    -begin transcript-

    Iranian Air Defense Site: 'Unknown aircraft you are in Iranian airspace. Identify yourself.'

    Aircraft: 'This is a United States aircraft. I am in Iraqi airspace.'

    Iranian Air Defense Site: 'You are in Iranian airspace. If you do not depart our airspace we will launch interceptor aircraft!'

    Aircraft: 'This is a United States Marine Corps FA-18 fighter. Send 'em up, I'll wait!'

    Iranian Air Defense Site: ( ... total silence)

    -End transcript-

    "God bless our troops. There is something about a Marine that makes other countries listen to reason... Grant L. Rosensteel, Jr., USAF"

    I agree. That sure brought a smile to mine and my wife's face.

    Actually just to be clear I meant to post this in the Off Topic area, but goofed and ended up with it in the Jokes thread.

    This is not a joke (though funny) it is a true story.
