Something that will get your attention, for Memorial Day

My dad taught me how to fly years before I joined the Air Force.  He'd flown a B-17 for 35 missions over Europe in WW2, and after the war he was an instructor at the new test pilot school, then at Wright-Patterson AFB. (One of his students--in academics--was Chuck Yeager.)

He shared many sayings with me, and one that stands out was "I'd rather be lucky than good."  It was tongue-in-cheek, obviously:  You want to be both.  Like the pilot in the clip below:

Hope y'all have a lovely Memorial Day.
