More Collateral Women And Children, This Time In San Diego

Grace and Rachel Yoon were killed on Monday when a fighter jet crashed into their San Diego home. Grace was 15 months old; Rachel wasn't yet two months.

Their mother, Young Mi, and her mother, Suk Im Kim, were also killed.

Dong Yun Yoon lost his daughters, his wife, and his mother-in-law, as well as his home.

According to the Los Angeles Times,
"I believe my wife and two babies and mother-in-law are in heaven with God," Yoon said at a news conference afterward. "Nobody expected such a horrible thing to happen, especially right here, our house."
Yoon said he bore no ill will toward the Marine Corps pilot who ejected safely before the jet plunged into the neighborhood two miles west of the runway at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. "I pray for him not to suffer for this action," Yoon said. "I know he's one of our treasures for our country."

One can only imagine how many treasures our country would need if any of our so-called enemies actually had an Air Force.

All these photos were published by the LA Times. You can see them and many more here.

This is us, fighting a fireball with a garden hose.
