The Biography of a Rabbit

by -Roy G. Benson Jr.

This is the story of a young man, my uncle "Bunny",  growing up in Canandaigua, New York,

including his joining the Army, training to fly, and flying a P51 on missions over Germany. 

He was ultimately shot down, taken prisoner and liberated about a year later.

The story concludes with clips from his return to a normal life back in Canandaigua.

I hope the story will be of interest to other students of history.    -Burr
