Was Rescued From Pacific Uninjured

Lieut. Robert Roseberry, who has been one of the Mustang pilots participating in the attacks on the Japanese islands, had to bail out May 29, as he was returning to Iwo Jima, his home base, and spent two or three hours in the water before he was picked up by a rescue ship. His letter gave few particulars but apparently on his return trip the engine of his pursuit plane failed to function and he parachuted to the Pacific, where the rubber raft kept him afloat until a rescue ship came along. He as back at his home base in Iwo Jima when he wrote the letter June 2. He came through the experience without any serious injury.
