World War II navigator talks about his 31 missions

In 1945, Penn State alumnus Alexander “Lew” Parry Jr., age 95, found himself in the middle of World War II, spending much of his active-duty time that year as a navigator in a B-29, flying 31 missions and targeting some of Japan’s key military strongholds and other targets, while escaping near-death experiences a number of times.
