Imagine: you’re in some desert overseas; bullets are flying all over the place and you and your squad are pinned down. A call is made for close air support, you don’t know what’s coming but it just needs to get here fast. Now what would you want to have your back in a firefight? A stealth fighter or a jet nicked named the warthog?

This is literally life or death for the soldier on the ground. If they do not get the air support they need, Americans would die. We absolutely need to keep this aircraft for the sake of the American warfighter, for them just hearing the engine or the gun lets them know that there in good hands now. Whenever they call for air support they specifically request the A-10 and they don’t want anything
