      My worst jump story:
      My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
      As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
      No lie.

                • Just finished Hitlerland by Andrew Nagorski. Good read and well documented. It is a look at what Americans, of all walks of life, living in Germany, thought of Hitler during his rise to power, up to December 1941. Some were close to Hitler professionally and personly, others knew him from afar. Some thought him a messiah and others a joke that the German people would soon tire of laughing at and run out of the country. Give it a read.

                    • I started this one as well.



                      Very interesting read. I did not know it was common for modern warships to intentionally ram u-boats as a common practice, but it seemed to be SOP.
