Shot down by the best

(OUR ARMY AT WAR #140, March 1964)

Imagine this poor German flyer's luck: He's tooling along in his checkerboard-painted Messerschmidt ME-109 when he spots a couple GIs in a jeep. So he pounces, right into the machine gun of SGT. ROCK! BOOM. Done.

(G.I. COMBAT #110, Feb/Mar 1965)

A year later (I assume after a long hospital stay), the same pilot has a freshly checkerboard-painted Focke-Wulf FW-190. He spots a puny, under-gunned and under-armored American tank and pounces... right into the machine guns of JEB STUART and the crew of the HAUNTED TANK! BOOM. Kiss that plane goodbye. Worst luck ever.

I think its a toss up as to whether J.E.B. Stuart from The Haunted Tank series or General George S. Patton inspired me more to enlist as a tanker in the Army....
