May 10 is an interesting date in military history.

On May 10, 1863, General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson passed away as result of complications from being wounded in a friendly fire incident. Less than two months later, the last hopes of the Confederacy vanished on the fields of Gettysburg, and Jackson's absence was conspicuous.

On May 10, 1940, German forces began their invasion of the Low Countries and France.

On May 10, 1972, Randall "Duke" Cunningham became the last US Navy ace flying an F-4 in Viet Nam.

>"What the hell happened?"

Being a skilled pilot does not mean you are a ethical person.

Pilot jokes are funny because they address a fundamental truth (some/most/all [you decide] pilots are extreme egotists.)

The last I find bittersweet, considering how Duke's greed and character flaws turned a hero into a disgraced inmate. I can't read or watch anything on his Vietnam service without saying out loud, "What the hell happened?"
