Wilbur Green

Wilbur (Bill) Green captained a patrol boat in the Aleutians during World War II. They primarily served to rescue downed airmen, and Bill recalls with pleasure how effectively his crew - largely young men raised as fishermen - handled their vessel even in the rough conditions of the North Pacific.
