    I have never had a bad experience with a Jehovah' Witness. As stated in other posts they are polite and respectful. I just don't like the fact that come knocking on my door uninvited, so when they do I politely tell them I am not interested in what they are selling and thank them for stopping by, and than I go back into my home closing the door behind me.
    Humble yourself, for there is an enormous change coming.

    if you can spot them headed your way a few doors down, break out the fd&c red and spill it in the foyer and step on it as you answer their door ring. invite them in and see how far they tail you into the house

    Throughout my life, many Jehovah's Witnesses have come to my door. Most are women, but in Denver there was a older, retired man who came with a young lady and later with his wife. While I don't agree with JW beliefs, I have enjoyed many of their people.

    Here in Oklahoma, an older (than me) woman came........she was a lovely person and I looked forward to her visits. At one point my husband and I went out for dinner with her and her husband. Her husband, as a 19 year old pilot, flew a plane that dropped paratroopers over Normandy on D-Day. We didn't pursue the friendship because JW's aren't allowed to have friends outside their religion and we were not going to convert.

    I have no complaint about them.

    um, pilot training couldnt start till you entered the military and they brought you along in stages. to be a glider pilot or one who had a C-47 loaded with AB wouldve went to more experianced pilots. not somone who just finished up over florida and was hurried over to england. ( they more than likely lied to you )

    Not necessarily. Most glider pilots of WWII were enlisted and had the rank of Staff Sergeants; later during the war they were given Flight Officer status. Gliders had the highest instances of fatalities per capita as well.

    Regarding age of Commissioned Officer pilots; the elder Bush was a 19 years old when he received his wings. He flew the TBF Avenger torpedo bomber during WWII.

    This gentleman that @Jen referred to, could've been a copilot aboard a C-47 as well, having less hours then those flying the 'left seat'.

    My aunt, too.
    I always thought it would be a good marketing move if they played this in church and while they were passing out Watch Tower material.
