A Covey Fac, after flying multiple missions for several consecutive days, missed a 0400 briefing for a very important mission in support of Prairie Fire operations.  The Covey had to be awakened by his flight commander and driven to the Ops Center.  After a thorough discussion of why he was late, the Covey deadpanned I suppose this ruins my chance for an outstanding OER.  The Covey flew multiple missions that day and performed in an exemplary manner.
