    DescriptionFrom World War II to Vietnam, this memoir tells the story of fighter pilot, Howard C 'Scrappy' Johnson. Beginning with his early years in Knoxville, Tennessee, it follows Johnson through his student career at the University of Louisville and his eventual enlistment as an Air Force cadet at the onset of World War II. Following World War II, Johnson served a tour of duty in the skies over Korea and eventually ended up as director of operations for the 388th Tactical Fighter Wing in Vietnam where he was instrumental in founding The Red River Valley Fighter Pilots, a group dedicated to the remembrance of fallen and captured airmen. Written with panache, this work records the bigger-than-life adventures of one of America's finest pilot.
