What exactly is a "Hoss" I have this two striper here who keeps calling me Hoss and I have no idea what it means. He's from Texas if it matters. LOL...

There was a character on an old western TV show called Bonanza that was named Hoss. Pretty big guy who was kind of "simple". Not sure if that's what he's referring to or not though. :D

LOL, he says it's a compliment where he is from. Claims he never heard of Bonanza. In his defense he is only 19 years old though. ;)

I searched it on Google and found this, among many other sites with stories about horses: "And when you read the quotes in this accounting, keep that auditory imagination in gear, and you’ll hear strong Yankee accents – whoff, for example, meaning wharf; bawn meaning born; hoss meaning horse; bahn meaning barn; and that’s just a small sample."

Here's the site: http://www.yesterdaysisland.com/03_articles/features/iceboat.html

I call a lot of people "hoss", its not meant to be derogatory. Does he also say "bud", "chief", and "boss" a lot? I think it is a southern thing... I use all those interchangeably in general conversation with my friends.

I'm in the Air Force (ANG) and I'm @ the rock right now in Kuwait. I've been doing this crap all year and this is it for me. I did a rotation at Al Udeid, then K2 (Uzbekistan) and then two rotations here at Salem. My orders end Jan. 5th. I can't wait. I'll be home next week. Oh yeah, 2A173, Comm/Nav Avionics. I knew you would ask. LOL..

Which aircraft? I was API Avionics on the F111 when I was in back in 1990. Don't hear of many avionics guys on the board.

Hey thanks. To be honest I am looking forward to getting home and then getting out. The Air Force has changed a lot in the 7 short years I have been in. It's not for me anymore. It's all about "froce protection" rather than "mission accomplishment". It's also become "the land of no". In the AOR it's no alcohol, no porn, no girls in your tent, no civilian clothes, no this, no that. I'm done.

I'm on 130's. I work E models, H2's, H3's, and the new J models. Busy as hell here. Most planes inbound to the box are still 130's.
