    Fighter pilots have always been shown as rough and tough for 2 generations, suave, macho and virile in movies and books. This has helped the candidates for officer and pilots slots to come from the same type of DNA in what the Air Force is looking for in their Air Force Academy. Of course, Hollywood is an important establishment for setting standards of all types. The President goes there to display his standards. The Air Force Academy can't tell it's students, especially those in sports, since all Cadets are in sports, told hold back on their machismo until their out of the school, as they have the rest of their life to life. Tail hook and other happenings still have their hold along with Internet and movies showing what pilots are like, even in the commercial aviation world. Cheating scandals in the past have gripped some of the Cadets, also. It is a school of high standards, on paper but Generals of all services get bit by lack of integrity and the hold on power, even in today's world. Morals should be high. The Academy will have to do more than just talk to the coaches.
