the Naval Aviation Museum newsletter.
"I want to be a Naval Aviator when I grow up because it's a fun and easy

learn numbers so they can read instruments. I guess they should be able to
read maps so they can find their way if they are lost. Naval Aviators
should be brave so they won't be scared if it's foggy and they can't see or
if a wing or motor falls off they should stay calm so they'll know what to
Naval Aviators have to have good eyes so they can see through clouds and
they can't be afraid of lightning or thunder because they are closer to them
than we are. The salary Naval Aviators make is another thing I like. They
make more money than they can spend. This is because most people think
airplane flying is dangerous, except Naval Aviators don't because they know
how easy it is. There isn't much I don't like, except girls like Naval
Aviators and all the stewardesses want to marry them, so they always have to
chase them away so they won't bother them.
I hope I don't get air sick because if I do, I couldn't be a Naval Aviator
and then would have to go to work.
