To Fly and Fight: An American Life DVD

Price: $39.95
Item Number: 6267636000000
This Voices of Valor special documentary, "To Fly and Fight, An American Life", is far from another collection of war stories.  Rather, it documents the life of an authentic American hero, C.E. "Bud" Anderson, a small town kid who began working in his father's fruit orchards at 7 years old and went on to become one of the most decorated fighter pilots of World War II, and, ultimately, a United States Air Force Legend.  

In this 60 minute Voices of Valor special, Bud tells his story first hand and helps illustrate it by sharing his personal film and photo collection, including his actual gun camera footage.

"You are what you are and I think I always knew who I was.  I was always the kid who ran into the yard to watch the airplanes fly over" - Bud Anderson

"When it was done, the 480 hours of combat flying in P-51 Mustangs and another 25 or so missions in Vietnam, almost all of those in F-105's, I never once suffered a hit in air-to-air combat.  The sum total of the damage my aircraft absorbed amounted to one small arms round that found one of my wings during a strafing gun after D-Day...  Needing a patch the size of a coin, that's exactly what my crew used 0 a British Shilling" - Bud Anderson
