The article interviews U.S. Parachute Infantry Regiment 2nd Lieutenant Edward Shames, about his military strategy in fighting the German troops in World War I. Shames shared that he always wanted to be an officer. Parts of his training were marching 200 miles a day, flying 49 miles on a parachute while passing a mountain and jumping from towers of about 200 feet high. He and a handful of soldiers with him saved the U.S. Air Forces from the hands of the Germans by blowing the bridge that the latter would take.
