While flying a simulated Hellfire hop the other day, we flew right over the stern of a surfaced sub... at ~300AGL... pretty effing sweet. I felt like I was in a Navy Commercial. I could hear the narrator and everything. HOWEVER, I still have never awakened, pissed excellence, looked in the mirror, and said to myself "Damn, I wish I could be a submariner today!" :D
