The young members of Pilot Frank Jeters flight crew took their role in defeating the Japanese one mission and one day at a time.They basked in their triumphs and suffered their share of tragedies. They stuck together to face the constant threat of falling out of the sky in war-weary B-24 bombers that lost engines and ran out of fuel at the most inopportune times.The Jeter Crews time together wasnt all tragic and sad, however. They thoroughly enjoyed their time away from war and quickly learned the art of shutting out fear and grief with a bottle of beer or a shot of whiskey. Brothers at Daybreak chronicles the Jeter Crews postwar lives and the enduring bond of brotherhood they never allowed to loosen.
