Thanks for your reply; I read it with interest.


I suspect the instances where military pilots take suicide missions (or are sent on them) are so exceptionally rare as to be just about nonexistent (I write that as a retired Army pilot).  Certainly, some missions are more hazardous than others, but that is true in and out of the military.


Your proposal that some national security missions are worth someone's life may be true in a broader since, but to the individual accepting such a mission, it would likely be a very hard sell.


Your comment about safety being the top priority for an organization is correct.  Perhaps it would be better to claim that safety is a top priority.  Every time we fly, we risk getting killed, and if we don't accept that, we have only a loose grasp of reality.
