Abstract : Many of the right ingredients for heroics came to the airmen of World War I, World War II, the Korean War, in Southeast Asia--but not all. Their equipment and training lost lives that, today, would not be lost. Look at what happened in the Iraqi skies over Baghdad. America was properly armed and prepared for Desert Storm -- and we all know the results of that. There have been other times and other places when we were not so well prepared and when only American grit made the difference.
