This is the account of a U.S. Army Air Corps pilot recalling the events that took place after their Flying Fortress was forced down over the Pacific Ocean during the Second World War:

"We just had time to to shove off on two rubber rafts, without a crumb of food or a drop of water. The boys were pretty worried - all except Sergeant Albert Hernandez of Dallas, our tail gunner.
