I flew the Pacific at age 17. However I was not alone. I shared my “adventure” with about 100 other guys, most of whom had less experience in the air than I did. Some even went “unvoluntairily” (sp?). We actually wrote letters home using what was then the fastest and cheapest communications service available to us, the Postal Mail. My parents expressed concern about my participation in this “adventure” and were quite pleased when I returned home safely.
We called this period of youthful exploration, Military Service !
