Overview
A WW II EXPERIENCE OF AIR FORCE P.O.W.s IN GERMANY Like many WWII veterans, Rich ( Dick ) Matheis had not discussed the details of his WWII flying experiences with either family or friends. All wanted more details as everyone was intrigued about this amazing part of his life. Following a great deal of cajoling by children and grandchildren--little by little his memories began to seep out.

About the author
Like many WWII veterans, Rich ( Dick ) Matheis had not discussed the details of his WWII flying experiences with either family or friends. All wanted more details as everyone was intrigued about this amazing part of his life. Following a great deal of cajoling by children and grandchildren--little by little his memories began to seep out. Finally, two years ago, I strongly urged him to write a book about his military and flying experiences. His contention then and even to this day has been that there are thousands of men with whom he has had contact who have had far more interesting adventures to reveal. We convinced him that his experiences were the ones important to his many- numbered family. As I read the drafts, chapter by chapter, I was extremely surprised and proud. There were so many stories and stories within stories, most of which had never before been revealed to me or to anyone in our family.
