Fighter pilot's integrity

When you are in the heavens. Slipping the surly bonds.

You are there by yourself. We trust you.

Yet, a fighter pilot gets into trouble when he violates that trust.

A fighter pilot cannot ride a halo of "trust me" when he has proven that he cannot be trusted.

Not all fighter pilots can be wing commanders.

And not all wing commanders retire as fighter pilots.

Some are asked to leave.
