There was an article a couple weeks ago about women going through pilot training to fly transports. Most of them wouldn't even give their name because
they were so scared.
The woman who has become the face of the group has received more death threats than she can count, including from her extended family. She would go to
perform a flight and the men would refuse to board the plane and demand she be removed.
So in addition to people trying to kill them just because they support the government, having to use equipment that doesn't always fit what they need
or is the best maintained, some of them have to worry about their own family doing something against them. And that's on top of the very real
possibility of having to worry about people in your own unit sabotaging you.
As bad as the US can be, it's a hell of a lot better than that year after year.
