COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Jim Wicker | 22nd Photo Reconnaissance Squadron, 7th Photo Reconnaissance Group, 8th Air Force - Army Air Corps

5:56   |   He was very satisfied to be a fighter pilot in training, but as he waited for gunnery school, Jim Wicker was moved into photo reconnaissance. There was more emphasis being put on intelligence and more pilots were needed. He went right into action in the run up to D-Day and on the afternoon of the 6th, the low clouds caused a very bad day for him.
