JET PIONEER: A fighter Pilot’s Memoir by Major General Carl G. Schneider U. S. Air Force (Ret.)
A Remarkable story of Major General Carl G. Schneider’s thirty-two year U. S. Air Force career. Beginning in 1946 as a newly enlisted AAF private, he rose through the ranks to become a two star general – an accomplishment very few men in American history have ever achieved.
This book is a fascinating look into the unprecedented career of a jet fighter pilot who flew one hundred combat missions in Korea and served in Vietnam flying combat missions with the VNAF. Filled with personal stories, Jet Pioneer: A Fighter Pilot’s Memoir takes the reader along as the author recounts riveting combat missions, often humorous accounts of his Air Force career as well as the “gut-wrenching moments” of learning close friends were shot down by the enemy and killed or captured.
