Matt Crawford speaks with author Kevin Maurer about his book, Damn Lucky. This is the kick in the teeth, hold on to the seat of your pants story of, Second Lieutenant John "Lucky" Luckadoo. The world was at was and Luckadoo wanted to serve, Pearl Harbor would be the final straw and the United States Air Force would be his branch. Trained as a pilot and assigned to the 100th Bomb Group, 25 missions were required, and you had a 1 and 10 chance of surviving that call to duty. Maurer puts us in the cockpit with "Lucky" and shares his story in a way only he could. You will shiver and your pulse will quicken as you read along and I hopw you do.
