"Our group completed its training at Braggs and flew to Lowry Air Base in Denver...."
 

"There was a national draft, but most young men volunteered eagerly for service in the armed forces...."
 

"... Bangor we were briefed on our flight over the Atlantic Ocean to Iceland with special emphasis o the tricky approach up a  fjord and landing at an airfield in Greenland if we had trouble...."
 

... including the offshore waters called The Wash...."
 


Source: Col. Harold L. James approached a member of my family after Pete's Medal of Honor Ceremony asking if she would be interested in the parts of his autobiography pertaining to Pete. It took more than a month to be copied and sent to me, but here are his papers.
