Autobiography of a World War 2 Tailhooker

This is not a work of fiction. The characters and events descibed in this book are not imaginary, and any reference or resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, is purely intentional.

As you will read early in the first chapter, I have embarked on this effort simply to give my grandchildren and their descendents a better grasp of their heritage, should they be so inclined to read it.
