Mem­o­ries of Sabre Ace Harold Fis­cher

Flight Journal - - EDITORIAL -

I thor­oughly en­joyed the ar­ti­cle “Cap­tured” about Capt. Harold Fis­cher, which ap­peared in the most re­cent is­sue of Flight Jour­nal. In 1959, I was a stu­dent at Iowa State Uni­ver­sity and was a cadet in the Air Force ROTC pro­gram. Capt. Fis­cher was as­signed to the staff of the AFROTC de­tach­ment and taught classes to the in­com­ing fresh­man AFROTC stu­dents. Those of us who were aware of his back­ground were in awe of him—a dou­ble jet ace in Korea, POW, and sur­vivor. He made quite an im­pres­sion on us cadets and gave us an out­stand­ing ex­am­ple of what a U.S. Air Force of­fi­cer should be. Capt. Thomas E. Lowe, USAF,
