    If you where a WW2 seviceman and had a choice of what unit would you be (Army, Navy, Air Force) and what theater you would be in (Africa, Europe, Eastern, Pacific ect) what would it be?

    For me it would be a Fighter pilot in 1944 in France, just because there where few enemy fighters in the sky.

    Yeah I would do that too but if I had the choice I would join Joe or fly a fighter for the RAF wherever they sent me.

    As I stated in another thread just like this one, Im with FBJ on this. In fact below is a pic of me and FBJ with our PBY crew after a long and tough mission patroling the Carribean at one of our famous beach parties afterward.

    The other guys, jumped into the back of the pic, they dont belong to us. After they would not leave, we beat them up and they ran away.

    We get all the girls. We just tell them we fly and ask them them if they want to see our plane, later we give them rides...

    :lol:
