Notice in the opening shot you'll see the gunner's position is all shot up while the pilot's cockpit ahead of it is undamaged.
Later on, notice the corpsman taking a fingerprint of the deceased gunner, before the film continues, then showing the chaplain saying the final prayers, followed by taps, then the sailors push the aircraft and our patriotic airman over the side and watch it sink into the distance sea. Here's one for a serious conversation with your kids. THIS WAS REAL!
This is what 18 year old "kids" were doing in 1944. No safe spaces, no hurtful unthinkable remarks that they couldn't cope with, just dying for their country so the rest of us, even the ungrateful, uninformed snowflakes could act like fools decades later.
