From Battleland/Time:

“Since April of 1953, the United States has deployed roughly seven million American service members to combat and contingency operations around the world, and thousands of them have died there -- but not a single one has been killed by enemy aircraft.”

— General Mark Welsh, the Air Force chief of staff, testifying on Capitol Hill on Wednesday.
