    My uncle had a similar story. While training in England for the landing they were running over logs. The logs shifted when he ran over them and his foot slipped between them and he crushed his ankle. Yeah a broken leg sucked but he didn't have to make the landing. Ended up living well into his 60's. Luck of the draw man ... wow ...

    Similar with my dad and Vietnam. He was drafted into the army, but they ended up making him a stateside MP. He never saw a day of combat and is still alive at 63.

    My step-dad, on the other hand, enlisted in the Navy near the end of the war. He was on the flight deck when they were pushing helicopters into the ocean to make room for others to land during Operation Frequent Wind when they were evacuating Saigon. He spent 28 years in the Navy, before retiring, and is still alive at 58.
