It's All A Matter Of Luck

Folks every once in awhile there happens to be a first hand accounting of a WW II adventure that comes to light.
This is an accounting of an Ensign, as wet as the gray paint of the ATR he was assigned too.....being placed to "re-place" the Captain on very, very short notice. Hell he'd only been out of Candidate School a few days.

Well let me tell you....this gentleman had one exciting adventure...and he was just starting out.

This is the story: HERE
