COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

George Keating | 731st Bomb Squadron, 452nd Bomb Group, 8th Air Force - Army Air Corps

5:27   |   George Keating shipped out on the Queen Elizabeth. There was no escort fast enough to keep up with her, so they traveled alone to England where his B-17 was waiting for him. He was on the ground crew and was not destined to be on the front lines, but there was that one time a lone German plane slipped through.
