I did, but I was in the Navy.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Very good article! If you want another good book look for " The Forgotten 500". About Airmen shot down over Czechoslovakia and their rescue.

I knew about it, like WW Iím ex Navy, but not to this extent. I deployed aboard a aircraft carrier and my foster brother was a sub sailor. Good read, thanks.

The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.
