A World War II Veteran’s Story by Samuel Hoseit

This is a funny story told by my late father who served in the 13 AAF (Jungle) USAAF, 5th Bomb Group (H).

In 1945, the “Bomber Barons” were camped in the jungle near the Australians. My father and some other flyboys were invited for dinner at the Australian Camp. They were being fed a steady diet of Spam and were sick of it, so they were really excited to join the Aussies for dinner. They joined their hosts in the chow line and and asked “What’s for dinner?” The answer was “SPAM.”
