Military Chat…

During the second Gulf War, I was an Air Force colonel. I
routinely flew on different aircraft to familiarize myself
with their capabilities. One day I was aboard an
intelligence aircraft where each crew member was surrounded
by complex gear.

A young major showed me his computer screen. “That’s a chat
screen, sir,” the soldier said. “We use it to relay enemy
information to the crew. It’s like instant messaging.”

Nodding, I moved down the line. Flashing on an airman’s
screen several feet away was this warning: “Heads up! The
colonel’s on the way!”
