Escape From Korea

Just the act of flying in the military can be a dangerous job, especially during a night carrier landing in rain and fog. When combat missions are added to the mix, casualties are a certainty and not all the casualties are on the battlefield. I was one of the lucky ones. I came back home relatively unscarred physically or emotionally. However, not all of my fellow airmen were so fortunate.

By John J. Fischer with James V. Lee

John Fischer's Escape From Korea held my
attention throughout. It was difficult to put
down until finished. Having served with
KMAAG some twelve years later, I am very
familiar with the terrain of Korea and of
course, the smell of the crop fields. How
pilots survived the crash and the march
through this almost unflyable country has
to be God's will. Fischer's details about his
trek through Korea were so vivid that it
made me feel like I was there again. This is
a story made for a movie.

Ray LaFleur,
Lt. Col. USAF (Ret)

For those who admire America's warriors, John
Fischer has it just right in Escape from Korea.
This accurate chronicle of courage,
perseverance and daring under the most adverse circumstances is absolutely riveting.

About the Author

James V. Lee was born December 10, 1926 to Rita Belle Greenlee and Judson Warren (Dud) Lee in the O. K. Community near O’Donnell in the Texas Panhandle. Besides O.K., he grew up in various locales in West Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. When his mother remarried, he was finally able to call home a small farm west of Ackerly, Texas.

James was graduated from Abilene Christian College (now university) in 1949 with a Bachelor’s degree in English and earned his Master’s degree in education from Southwest Texas State University. James married the former Hazel Juanita Lee (yes, same last name, but no kin) in 1949. They enjoyed a sixty-year marriage before Nita passed away in 2010. Kerry and Gail are their only children.

Starting with his service in the U. S. Navy, James has led a varied and interesting life as a successful salesman and educator. As a civilian teaching aboard U. S. Navy ships for five years, he traveled extensively in thirty-six countries, most of the oceans of the world, and “more islands than I can remember.” His interests include traveling, writing, physical fitness, and gardening. James currently resides in Richardson, Texas.
