Every Hundred Feet

Retired Airman, Alamogordo, NM, 2013 - A retired Air Force man poses in the afternoon’s last light at a local veteran’s outpost near Holloman Air Force base, a major center of drone pilot training.  From my Drone Beat story about the sedentary lives of drone pilots which Mother Jones published in June:  http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2013/06/drone-pilots-reaper-photo-essay.  All the Syria chatter has me wondering what kind of sorties are being handed down to the RPA pilots right about now.
