COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

James Chafin | 370th Bomb Squadron, 307th Bomb Group, 13th Air Force

6:30   |   Along with some buddies from school, James Chafin volunteered for the Army Air Corps and, after basic training, he wound up as an instructor on the Link Trainer for instrument flying. Then the Air Corps sent him to college because of superior aptitude test scores, but that program ended abruptly. He wanted to get into the war!
