COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

3:21   |   When you attack naval vessels on a bombing run, the amount of anti-aircraft fire can be overwhelming.

This helped him face the strain of postwar life, something the rest of the crew was unable to do. (This interview made possible with the support of MSG RONALD M. CAREY, U.S.A. (RET).)
