Overview

This book is a history of my flying experiences in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II. The instructional phase of my flying career began in August 1943, and I received my pilot's Wings in February 1944. I then became a copilot on a B-17, and had operational training with a crew in Florida. My crew was sent to England to fly with the Eighth Air Force. We were based with the 388th Bomb Group at Knettishall in East Anglia. From this base I flew 26 missions into Germany. The last section tells something of my hospitalization after I was wounded on my last mission.
