Freedom Fighters: Eddie Corbitt

When Eddie Corbitt joined the Air Force Reserve in 1950, he was pretty much assured he wouldn't be activated. After all, he was married and had a child.

But when the North Korean Army crossed the 38th parallel into South Korea in June of that year, everything changed.

Corbitt was sent to an air base closest to the front line and as a top mechanic, his job was to keep the P-51 fighter planes in the air.
