Donald W Stobbs

Donald Stobbs was one of five in the family who served in World War II. He was trained as a Navy pilot and assigned to VPB-135 but as the war drew to a close pilots weren't in as high demand. He was retrained and served as a navigator on a PV-2 flying missions off Attu in the Aleutians. Through Donald's hand-written memoir and photos you can learn about his training experiences, troubles and life on the Aleutian chain.
