National Archives WWII escape and evasion reports.


Recommended Posts


My father was in the USAF, stationed in West Germany in the 50s. Part of his training included a week of evasion in the countryside--he and another officer were dropped off in a field and ordered to avoid contact with anyone for a week. He told me that went to a nearby farm house, knocked on the door and got taken care of by a nice family until it was time to report back in. :)

He left the military after only a few years, which was unusual for a Citadel graduate. I asked him why once, and he told me to go watch No Time For Sergeants.
