You may be asking yourself, “What could be better than United States fighter pilots dropping bombs on the Islamic State group?”
The answer is easy — United States fighter pilots dropping bombs on the Islamic State group on Christmas Day while wearing Santa Claus hats.
The pilots, donned in their festive attire, carried out 18 airstrikes on Islamic State strongholds in Iraq and Syria on Dec. 25 as part of Operation Inherent Resolve, according to the U.K. Daily Mail.
The Department of Defense captured photos of a heroic pilot wearing a Santa hat and giving the camera a “thumbs up” before delivering death to the monsters of the Islamic State group.
Another picture taken from below the jet showed the pilot’s F-16 loaded with various munitions to be delivered to Islamic State targets, The Daily Caller reported.
This particular F-16 reportedly belonged to the 134th Fighter Squadron of the Vermont Air National Guard based in Burlington, according to The Aviationist. The squad has been commonly referred to as “The Green Mountain Boys.”
The jets, along with local ground forces, have been engaged in a double-pronged attack on the radical Islamic regime in Mosul, its last major stronghold in Iraq, as well as its de facto capital in Syria — Raqqa.
Roughly 5,200 U.S. troops have been stationed in Iraq in order to help local forces retake the portion of their country that was seized by the Islamic State more than two and a half years ago.
Much like Santa Claus delivered presents to deserving boys and girls on Christmas, these Santa pilots delivered much-deserved gifts to the barbaric terrorists of the Islamic State group.
Merry Christmas from the United States of America!
