The Right Stuff

Anyone that is questioning the qualifications required to fly an aircraft, specifically a ‘Fighter’ aircraft, in the United States Military, needs to read this recent account about one decorated Fighter Pilot. The ‘washout’ rate is phenominal. In actuality the regimen of training that washes out so many promising pilots, really saves their lives as they then join the ‘support’ arena of their chosen military.  Also a reminder, The  ‘Commander In Chief’ has to earn that title and respect,  lest any one forget.  http://www.theatlantic.com/doc/200903/air-force
