Geez man, just saw at Fox News Tv's host Bill O’Reilly interviewing the pretty LEA GABRIELLE. Lea Gabrielle who?!
Lea Gabrielle, a skater when she was young. saw the U.S Air Force Blue Angels made some acrobatic jets' (F-16s) stunts, and told herself she want to be a fighter pilot someday.
With 10% female that composed the 100% of her Class 1997 at the United States Naval Academy (USNA) in Annapolis, Maryland (Alma mater of Philippine Congressman Roilo Golez and Secretary Joseph Emilio Abaya of the Department of Telecommunication and Communication) she burned her midnight candle there and survived the rigorous training that would transform a civilian to a military killing “machine”.
“I did not find the training there hard. Probably because I was into skate when I was young,” she told O’Reilly.
She said she served the navy for 12 years and flew the F/A18 “Hornet” jet for combat missions in a Carrier during the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars.
“With combat deployment from USS George Washington. Her call sign as a pilot was "Flower". Additional duties were as a landing signals officer (LSO) and as a squadron public affairs officer. She also served as an intelligence operations officer during Operation Enduring Freedom, and while in Afghanistan she was embedded with a Navy SEAL unit conducting intelligence operations. She was also a defense foreign liaison officer,”Wikipidea reported.
“What was the dangerous part of being a fighter pilot?” O’Reilly posed to Gabrielle.
“When I would be landing on a night mission on an aircraft carrier,” Gabrielle retorted.
When asked why she wanted to be journalist at NBC, a military reporter for KNSD-TV (NBC 7), Fox News TV from being a fighter pilot, she said: “Because of journalists, many people support the war efforts. I saw you too (she referred to O’Reilly) supporting the war efforts of our country”.
Geez man, just remember yesterday the book I gave to the pretty Michelle Zarate Lioanang, a congressional staff, when I joined the group of Congressman Pol Bataoil (2nd District, Pangasinan) having a party, with the people’s organization composed of the Unwashed of the Society, at a far flung village in his district.
