About this title

Synopsis:

This is a? collectionof approximately 75 narratives (and numerous photos with most taken personallyby the author), related to thoughts and observations of many people andincidents? experienced in a relativelyshort military career, just 2 years and 7 months, but almost a subsequent lifetime of reflection of all!?? The Korean Air War was not all F-86 Sabresvs. Mig-15s--the unsung and obsolete B-29s (vs. Migs)? are almost asforgotten as The Korean War itself! What is NOT forgotten, nor ever will be, isthe extremely close camaraderie of our 11 crewmembers flying combat in our shipnamed ?NO SWEAT?. These anecdotes are not the grand strategies or thestatistics of military planners--but rather of those smaller happenings torelatively average people, crewmembers and others, who in some cases rose togrander levels of the human spirit --with some ?gone missing?!? That I have already had several friends read just a few ofmy anecdotes, and critique as they have, has assured me that I have done what Ihad intended--to relate here the sadness, terror, humor, and joy sometimesoccurring within moments of each other!?Bud, I read all your postings, some times with tears,others with laughter but always with enjoyment?. ? Don Brzezinski,WW II B-29 Combat Crewman?
