    The 920th Rescue Wing is celebrating the legacy of its HC-130P/N combat-rescue fleet as the wing expects to receive a replacement fleet of HC-130J in the Spring of 2020.

Jesus Ulloa, 39th Rescue Squadron

      England has no kidney bank, but it does have a Liverpool. Haunted French pancakes give me the crepes.   This girl today said she recognized me from the Vegetarians Club, but I'd swear I've never met herbivore. I know a guy who's addicted to drinking brake fluid, but he says he can stop any time.  A thief who stole a calendar got twelve months.  When the smog lifts in Los Angeles U.C.L.A.  I got some batteries that were given out free of charge.  A dentist and a manicurist married.

      I’m not having much luck with jobs lately: I couldn’t concentrate in the orange juice factory. I wasn’t suited to be a tailor. The muffler factory was just exhausting. I couldn’t cut it as barber. I didn’t have the patience to be a doctor. I didn’t fit in the shoe factory even though I put my soul into it. The paper shop folded. Pool maintenance was too draining. I got fired from the cannon factory. And I just couldn’t see

      Dad Jokes:   I dreamed about drowning in an ocean made out of orange soda last night. It took me a while to work out it was just a Fanta sea.   Without geometry life is pointless.   A termite walks into a bar and asks “Is the bar tender here?”   I gave all my dead batteries away today… Free of charge.   I needed a password eight characters long so I picked Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

      What's the difference between girls aged: 8, 18, 28, 38, 48, 58, 68 and 78? At 8 - You take her to bed and tell her a story. At 18 - You tell her a story and take her to bed. At 28 - You don't need to tell her a story to take her to bed. At 38 - She tells you a story and takes you to bed. At 48 - You tell her a story to avoid going to bed. At 58 - You stay in bed to avoid her story. At 68 - If you take her to bed, that'll be a story. At 78 - You can get out of bed, that's anothe
