This book follows an Air Force pilot's experiences as a C-5 Galaxy pilot of America's largest transport aircraft through ten years in the Air Mobility Command. This is the third and final book of my three-book autobiography. In addition to my flying experiences, I detail the anthrax shot debacle inflicted on America's front line troops by national command authorities, civilian and military.
