Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Lee Ellis | 390th Tactical Fighter Squadron, 366th Tactical Fighter Wing - Air Force

6:41   |   Despite what he originally thought, Lee Ellis was told many years later by an outside witness that his plane was in fact not shot down, and instead an electrical fuse blew up the bombs on the wing of his plane which made it seem like he was shot. He describes the details of how he got captured and sent to a POW Camp (Part 3 of 3).
