I  Am Coming!

Dear Terrorists: 
I am a Navy Aviator. I was born and raised in a small town in New England. I come from a family of five. I was raised in a middle class home and taught my values by my mother and father.
 

My dad worked a series of jobs in finance and my mom took care of us kids. We were not an overly religious family, but attended church most Sundays. It was a nice small Episcopal Church.  I have a brother and sister and I am the youngest in my family.  I was the first in many generations to attend college.
 

I have flown Naval aircraft for 16 years.  For me the flying was never a lifelong dream or a "calling," it just happened.  I needed a job and I liked the challenge.  I continue to do it today because I feel it is important to give back to a nation which has given so much to me. I do it because, although I will never be rich, my family will be comfortable.
 

I do it because many of my friends have left for the airlines and someone has to do it.
 

My government has spent millions to train me to fly these multi-million dollar aircraft. I make about 70,000 dollars a year and after 20 years will be offered a pension.
 

 
I like baseball, but think the players make too much mon-
ey. I am in awe of firemen and policemen and what they do each day for my community, and like teachers, they just don't get paid enough.
 

 
I respect my elders and always use sir or ma'am when addressing a stranger I'm not sure about kids these days, but I think that's normal for every generation.
 

 
I voted for George Bush because I like him.  I think I made
a pretty good choice.
 

I tell you all this because when I come for you, I want you
to know me. I won't be hiding behind a woman or a child.  I won't be disguised or pretending to be something I am not.  I will be in a U.S. issue flight suit. I will be wearing standard US issue flight gear, and I will be flying a navy aircraft clearly marked as a US warplane.  
I wish we could meet up close in a small room where I could wrap my hands around your throat and slowly squeeze the life out of you, but unfortunately, you're hiding in a hole in the ground, so we will have to do this a different way.
 

I want you to also know that  I am very good at what I do.   I can put a 2,000 lb weapon through a window from 10,000 feet up.  I generally only fly at night, so you may want to start sleeping during the day. I am not eager to die for my country, but I am willing to sacrifice my life to protect it from animals like you.
 

 
I will do everything in my power to ensure no civilians are hurt as I take aim at you.
 

My countrymen are a forgiving bunch.  Many are already forgetting what you did on Sept 11th.  But I will not forget, and my President will not forget.
 

 
I am coming.  I hope you know me a little bit better, see 
you soon...sleep tight.

Signed
A U.S. Navy Pilot
