☆ Reassign Them to the Navy or Marines

Despite multiple efforts to push the iconic A-10 Warthog‘s retirement date further into the future, the U.S. Air Force is now slated to shelve dozens of the Cold War-era ground-attack planes in the upcoming fiscal year, according to the service’s budget request.
