We were flying low, about 1500 feet. We were under heavy fire from the German forces. There was a loud boom, you could tell it was close. We looked, and on the ground there was a 20 mm shell that, if exploded, will kill us all. My buddy had the sense to pick it up and throw it out the window, and it dropped a couple hundred feet and exploded, unharming to us. I thought that was the end for me, and if it weren't for the actions of my co-pilot, I wouldn't be here today.

I feel bad for the Germans. Adolf Hitler was a very persuasive speaker, and it was bad times for them. I personally have no bitterness for Germany; it's a very nice country. (grandpa speaking)

I would say a combination: My wedding day, and the birth of my three beautiful children.
