Time Flies: Memories of One of the Last Veterans of World War II

$11.95

The World War II generation is dying off at the rate of about 487 a day nationwide. Only 80,000 are left of the 16,000,000 who were in service during World War II. Ray Schaaf is one of the last surviving WWII vets. In Time Flies, he shares his experiences as a boy growing up in a family of five in small-town Colorado before and during the Depression; a young man who eagerly joined the Army Air Corps to fight World War II; a gunner on thirty-five bombing missions; a husband and father of four; a civilian working a variety of jobs after the war before rejoining the military; a career officer in the Air Force, a fuels and missile expert for more than twenty-six years; a retiree enjoying hobbies, friends, and travels with his wife; a widower still enjoying friendship and travel. Time Flies is not only the story of Ray Schaaf; it is the story of many of our World War II heroes.
