Japanese Navy ordered to execute all Allied personnel captured at sea! Today in WW2 history 3/20/43. That order was well on the mind of this brave naval aviator as he floated for hours in his inflatable raft hoping for rescue. Rescue that came, when a US submarine periscope appeared on the surface. His TBM Avenger torpedo bomber had caught fire after taking heavy anti-aircraft fire in the Pacific's Bonin Islands. Recognize him?
