F-18 A Day at the Office

“I feel that we are often taken out of our comfort zones, pushed and shoved out of our nests, because if not, we would never know what we could do with our wings, we would never see the horizon and the sun setting on it, we would never know that there’s something far better beyond where we are at the moment. It can hurt, but then later you say “Thank You.”

-C. JoyBell C.

All of us have our own demons to fight. We all face difficulties in life which sometimes seems too much to take. We go through struggles and many times we are on the verge of giving up. What makes each one of us different is the way we fight our battles. While some of us are ruled by ours fear and succumb to defeat, some are brave enough to overcome their fears and end up victorious.

Pilots are victorious soldiers. Whether they win or lose; they have already won so much. They conquered their inner demons and stood up for our country and people. They bravely put their lives at risk for the sake of ours, and that is an honorable and courageous act that only a brave soldier can ever do.

Every day, they undergo intense training to control and maintain their aircraft be on guard against imminent attack. They sacrifice living a life of comfort, a life with the ones they love, to fight for our freedom.

While some of us complain about our responsibilities, they bravely fulfill theirs even if it means putting their lives at risk. They don’t know what fate lies ahead of them but despite all that, they face every battle with courage in the hope of protecting our country and its people.

To commemorate the brave pilots who fought and sacrificed their lives for our freedom, let us take a glimpse of their lives by watching this video below.

Our brave pilot soldiers face every fight in the sky even without knowing what lies beyond the horizon. They face their battles with courage knowing that whether they win or lose in combat, they have bravely fought for their country and that is more than enough for them to feel victorious.
