Publisher's Summary

Jet Pioneer: A Fighter Pilot's Memoir is the remarkable story of Major General Carl G. Schneider's 32-year US Air Force career. Beginning in 1946 as a newly enlisted AAF private, he rose through the ranks to become a two star general - an accomplishment very few men in American history have ever achieved.

This audiobook is a fascinating look into the unprecedented career of a jet fighter pilot who flew 100 combat missions in Korea and served in Vietnam flying combat missions with the VNAF. Filled with personal stories, Jet Pioneer: A Fighter Pilot's Memoir takes the listeners along as the author recounts riveting combat missions, often humorous accounts of his air force career as well as the "gut-wrenching moments" of learning close friends were shot down by the enemy and killed or captured.

Boring

Typical R.L.O. bragging about how great he was at all his desk jobs. Little to no talk of actually flying.
