This scene depicts Lt. Dallas Braham, U.S. Navy Nurse Corps, standing in front of a Marine C-130 Hercules from VMGR-452 at an airfield in Iraq. Before he was commissioned, Braham was a naval air crewman flying in P-3 Orions. He was excited when he learned that we would spend an entire day flying in this C-130. As we rode in the cockpit, flying fast and low over Iraq, I looked over to see his face beaming with the thrill of tactical flying again.
