Prologue

Things happen. Maybe they happen for a reason. Maybe they just happen, for no reason whatsoever. The point is, things happen. Maybe we have control over what happen. Maybe we don’t.

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that.

petew25: I have been reading WW2 novels for years and am a retired Marine pilot.
