    That is interesting. I just have to take a deep breath and remember that this ain't Industrial Light and Magic. This is REAL. There are 10 men in each bomber fighting for their lives.

    I makes me wonder just how both sides did this!

    Yes. This is not models and movies. For all the film we see that results in actual planes being shot down, what we don't see is the injuries and trauma. Reactions of "Cool!" and "Awesome!', must be tempered with realization that these are films of those who gave their lives with violent end results.

    So all of us must relish in the history, but respect the sacrifices. And we ALL must remember those who served and gave all. And we must admire those who carried on without their fathers, husbands and sons.

    God bless each and every one of them.
