COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Jack Fletcher | 39th Squadron, 317th Troop Carrier Group - Army Air Corps

6:17   |   Jack Fletcher's troop carrier squadron moved from New Guinea to Leyte, where there was still fighting. He just missed some Japanese paratroopers who landed on the other side of the air strip. While temporarily withdrawn to the beach during that battle, some Red Cross coffee was denied them, at least on a free basis. When it came time to transport those folks, it was payback time.
