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

5:23   |   If one of the B-24's in his squadron was shot down, the others would fly a search pattern and try to find it, James Chafin's plane never had any luck at this. They nearly had a crash of their own when they landed to refuel with a full bomb load. He carried something from his mom in a vest pocket that gave him great comfort. (This interview made possible with the support of MSG RONALD M. CAREY, U.S.A. (RET).)
