|F/A-18s in the Missing Man Formation|

We all go to airshows and can easily think these guys are invincible flying around at high speeds far above the enemy, but it's important to remember that these guys are doing a dangerous job. Keep all the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines in your thoughts and prayers.
These two incidents are only a drop in the bucket of what the men and women of our armed forces endure on a routine basis.
