Best book I know by a WWII veteran from Abingdon

This Memorial Day one veteran's story I recollect is that of H.C. Kiser, Jr., who was one of my Sunday School teachers, and who was shot down over Italy in World War II. He has written Called to Be His Servant, H.C. Kiser, Jr.: A Biography, which includes some aspects of his POW stories and other interesting details about his life.

One part of the story that sticks in my mind is that when he was about to bail out, he saw that his parachute had come unraveled and was strewn through the plane, so he wadded it up against his chest and jumped.
