"Seven War Stories" presents the autobiography of a retired air force veteran who served in the Korean War, the conflict in Southeast Asia, and the Cuban crisis. Donald J. Meek's boyhood dream was to be a pilot in the air force-a goal that was unattainable when he enlisted, as high school graduates were not being accepted into pilot training. He was determined to fly, however, and became a crewmember in numerous types of aircraft; trying many different jobs until he achieved his ultimate goal of becoming a pilot. Mystery and intrigue reign as Meek reveals the intimate details of the clandestine duties that he performed during the "Secret War" in Laos. He recounts unbelievable tales of heroism that he performed in the line of duty during the Southeast Asia conflict. Experience the feel of the .50 caliber guns in a gunner's compartment during a night intruder mission as well as the firing of a simulated nuclear missile from an Air Defense Command fighter-interceptor as he details seven suspenseful flights that provided the basis for his illustrious career as a pilot.
