This book cronicals his life, from growing up in Cleveland, to the University of Chicago, on to pilot training at Tuskegee, and combat flying out of North Africa, Sicily, and Italy during WWII. After serving well over the required number of combat missions, Jamison rotated home and became a flight instructor where he was to fight another more insidious war back home against racism at Freeman Field in Indiana. The book continues through the Korean War and retirement after 22 years of service. It is a portrait of a proud American who loved his country, his friends, and his family. A great read!
