We salute the Air Force girlfriend with a ‘BRRRT’ jacket at an A-10 pilot’s homecoming

Some things are just so good, they bring tears to your eyes.

Some things are just so good, they bring tears to your eyes. Take, for example, the sight of fresh snow on a clear winter day, or the soft fur of a friendly puppy, or, for many in and out of uniform, the distinctive BRRRTT sound of a 30mm GAU-8 Avenger rotary cannon spitting 3,900 rounds a minute of 100% organic fury from the steel-grey nose tip of an A-10 Warthog.

Add to that list a 2019 photograph of Kacey Borden, who at the time rocked an incredibly stylish jean jacket with freedom's onomatopoeia written down the right sleeve. BRRRTT is love, and, as a wise man once said, love is why the A-10 will live forever.

Kacey, if you or Capt. Daniel Lagomarsino (the A-10 pilot in the photograph who Borden is welcoming back home after a six-month deployment to Southwest Asia) are reading this, please know that we salute you, and we kinda want matching jackets too.

Welcome home!
