Those things do happen in an army

On Ascension Island, between Africa and South American, Dunlap saw something misplaced:

A snow-white medium bomber standing in a revetment made us wonder and ask why. It belonged to an Alaskan outfit — got here by mistake. Those things do happen in an army. A snowplow came in at Suez once. I often wonder how it was explained to the Arabs.

    Thanks, Isegoria, for these snippets from Dunlap. An honest old-school man speaking plainly of the interesting things he’s seen and done. It reminds me of my father’s now-ancient back issues of Field & Stream and Sports Afield.

    As Faulkner said, the past is never dead. It’s not even past.
