I love the General's comment, there is a very fine line between madness and miracles, clearly our country and our Air Force are grateful for his service as a true representation of all Americans, underneath Americans strive to be there when it counts.

As an US Army veteran, I am proud to say "..Thank you Airman, Aim High.."

"His commander, Lieutenant General Jim Slife, posted that he can't decide if O'Brien is a "superman or mayhem," the guy from insurance commercials. We'll just call him a hero."

Amazing quote.
