Wayne Edwards, a 24-year combat veteran of the U.S. Air Force, says that he learned from that experience how to think fast as situations change. “In air-to-air fighting, what you do depends on what’s happening at that moment,” he explains. “You have to make decisions about things that have an impact 30 seconds later, and by then you have to make another decision that might be completely different.”
