I admired the men and women who flew missions in support of SOUTHERN WATCH. They got into aircraft everyday and flew over an impressively armed Iraq. They flew in planes that were maintained by men and women living far from home, frequently in conditions that boggle the mind of people who have never deployed on aircraft carriers or operated out of the Kingdom. It is a dangerous and lonely profession.

We lost a pilot today flying in support of the war we claim we are not fighting in Syria.
