you think you’re having a bad day think about Francis Angier of
Williston, Vermont. The pilot of a B-17 bomber during World War II,
Angier was literally blown out of his airplane by enemy fire. He was
severely injured when he hit the ground after opening his parachute at
tree top heights. That was only the beginning of his plight. He was
taken prisoner by the Germans and sent to a POW camp.”

stint in the POW camp. The book is titled, “Ready or Not: Into the Wild
