New Poem: "Gucci Boys"

 "Gucci Boys" is the next installment in my poetic memoir, A Wave of Poetry.  Gucci Boys was a tongue-in-cheek nickname given to the KC-10 Extender pilots.  The KC-10 Extender is a modified DC-10 that includes a boom employed for mid-air refueling missions.  One from McGuire arrived just as I was looking for a way to re-deploy from Thailand, and coincidentally I had saved its pilot's career after a medical mishap befell him.  He was only too happy to add me to his crew and fly me home.
