CleburneFan-

  There has always been a rivalry between the different services. I remember that we used to compose and sing little ditties making fun of those in the other services.

  But I can assure you that in times of trouble, none of this matters. Those naval aviators seen on the PBS series would do anything in their power, and take any risk, to save the soldiers and marines on the ground.

  In the 1960s, I competed against the cadets at the Air Force Academy. Based on that and other experiences, I can conclude that Air Force pilots are just as full of themselves as their Navy counterparts. This is not necessarily a bad thing. Flying fighters, especially, is not for the faint of heart.
