About the Book
I'd like to be bashful, but the girls won't let me, or so he said in his high school senior yearbook of 1939. While high school class president, Jim helped Central High School football team win its first championship in ten years. He went on to play football for Notre Dame University, was a fighter pilot in World War II, and played football for the 4th Air Force while in the army. This is not just the story of man, it is also the story of a boy growing up during the Great Depression and becoming a fighter pilot during the final months of the war.
