Each had recently graduated from different military schools at many different air fields around the country, and thus were now qualified pilots, navigators, bombardiers or gunners. This story tells what happened to one air crew brought together at that time: their training to operate as a crew of a B-24, four engine, heavy bomber- their flying a brand new one to the 15th Air Force field in southern Italy- their introduction to the war- and the war as they experienced it and the aftermath.
