What we have to look forward to?

This is what 70+ year old's have to look forward to.  This is something
that happened at an assisted living center.

The people who lived there have small apartments but they all eat at a
central cafeteria. One morning one of the residents didn't show up for
breakfast so my wife went upstairs and knocked on his door to see if
everything was OK. She could hear him through the door and he said that he
was running late and would be down shortly so she went back to the dining
area.

An hour later he still hadn't arrived so she went back up towards his room
and she found him on the stairs. He was coming down the stairs but was
having a hell of time. He had a death grip on the hand rail and seemed to
have trouble getting his legs to work right. She told him she was going to
call an ambulance but he told her no, he wasn't in any pain and just wanted
to have his breakfast. So she helped him the rest of the way down the
stairs and he had his breakfast.

When he tried to return to his room he was completely unable to get up even
the first step so they called an ambulance for him.

A couple hours later she called the hospital to see how he was doing. The
receptionist there said he was fine, he just had both of his legs in one
leg of his boxer shorts.

The strange story of Lt. Louis Curdes, and his 10 X WW2 Kills

Proudly displayed on the fuselage of P-51 Mustang "Bad Angel" were the
markings of the pilot's kills: seven Nazis; one Italian; one Japanese AND
ONE AMERICAN.

In 1942, the United States needed pilots for its war planes lots of war
planes; lots of pilots. Lt. Louis Curdes was one.

When he was 22 years old, he graduated flight training school, and was
shipped off to the Mediterranean, to fight Nazis in the air over Southern
Europe.

Lt. Louis Curdes arrived at his 82nd Fighter Group, 95th Fighter Squadron
in
April 1943 and was assigned a P-38 Lightning. Ten days later he shot down
three German Messerschmitt Bf-109 fighters.

A few weeks later, he downed two more German Bf -109's. In less than a
month of combat, Louis was an Ace. During the next three months, Louis shot
down an Italian Mc.202 fighter and two more Messerschmitts before his luck
ran out. A German fighter shot down his plane on August 27,  1943 over
Salerno,
Italy. Captured by the Italians, he was sent to a POW camp near Rome. No
doubt this is where he thought he would spend the remaining years of the
war. It wasn't to be. A few days later, the Italians surrendered. Louis and
a few other pilots escaped before the Nazis could take control of the camp.
One might think that such harrowing experiences would have taken the fight
out of Louis, yet he volunteered for another combat tour. This time, Uncle
Sam sent him to the Philippines where he flew P-51

Soon after arriving in the Pacific Theater, Louis downed a Mitsubishi
reconnaissance plane near Formosa. Now he was one of only three Americans
to have kills against all three Axis Powers: Germany, Italy, and Japan.

Up until this point, young Lt. Curdes combat career had been stellar. His
story was about to take a twist so bizarre that it seems like the fictional
creation of a Hollywood screenwriter.

While attacking the Japanese-held island of Bataan, one of Louis wingmen
was shot down. The pilot ditched in the ocean. Circling overhead, Louis
could see that his wingman had survived, so he stayed in the area to guide
a rescue plane and protect the downed pilot.

It wasn't long before he noticed another, larger airplane, wheels down,
preparing to land at the Japanese-held airfield on Bataan. He moved in to
investigate. Much to his surprise the approaching plane was a Douglas C-47
transport with American markings. He tried to make radio contact, but
without success. He maneuvered his Mustang in front of the big transport
several times trying to wave it off. The C-47 kept head to its landing
target. Apparently the
C-47 crew didn't realize they were about to land on a Japanese held island,
and soon would be captives. Lt. Curdes read the daily newspaper accounts of
the war, including the viciousness of the Japanese soldiers toward their
captives.

He knew that whoever was in that American C-47 would be, upon landing,
either dead or wish they were.  But what could he do? Audaciously, he lined
up his P-51 directly behind the transport, carefully sighted one of his .50
caliber machine guns and knocked out one of its two engines. Still the C-47
continued on toward the Bataan airfield. Curdes shifted his aim slightly
and knocked out the remaining engine, leaving the baffled pilot no choice
but to ditch in the ocean.

The big plane came down to it's wings in one piece about 50 yards from his
bobbing wingman. At this point, nightfall and low fuel forced Louis to
return to base.  The next morning, Louis flew cover for a rescuing PBY that
picked up the downed Mustang pilot and 12 passengers and crew, including
two female nurses, from the C-47.

All survived, and later, Lt. Curdes would end up marrying one of these
nurses.

For shooting down an unarmed American transport plane, Lt. Louis Curdes was
awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. Thereafter, on the fuselage of his
P-51 "Bad Angel", he proudly displayed the symbols of his kills: seven
German, one Italian, one Japanese and one American flag.
