unmanned aerial vehicles

We have a number of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) feeds coming in which we monitor for the analysts upstairs. You’d be surprised how much is caught on video. I have seen guys emplacing IEDs, rockets being fired, soldiers busting down doors, even a guy and a girl making love.

And now the Air Force has announced that UAV pilots – who fly their “aircraft” from a chair at a consol in an office – will be eligible for the Air Medal and the Distinguished Flying Cross. Jesus – I couldn’t make up better material for the Army to tease the Air Force about if I tried!
