COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

5:11   |   On his first day in Leyte, Jack Fletcher ran into a friend from his hometown. There were still Japanese there, too, about ten miles inland. He was an aircraft mechanic and a crew chief on a C-47, ferrying troops and supplies around the Philippines. It was on one of these missions that a stray bullet hit the cabin and gave him a leg wound.
