COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

2:46   |   It was early in the tour for James Chafin's crew when his pilot suffered a mental breakdown. He was immediately shipped out because flying a B-24 requires a steady hand and mind. The gunner points out that, since they were all volunteers, they could request not to fly anymore. (This interview made possible with the support of MSG RONALD M. CAREY, U.S.A. (RET).)
