    My Dad, Grover C. Mullins, was on this mission. When Emerson mysteriously pulled out of formation, Grover went down from the top turret and pushed the throttles back forward. Emerson retorted that he was going to court martial Grover but Grover said, „No you NOT, because we aren’t going to get back!“ AND so it happened. Grover was the last man out of „Sky Wolf.“
