A first-generation Italian-American who became the head of his household at an early age, Ray met every challenge life offered. Enlisting in the Army, he earned his wings. “Against All Odds” is an incredible true story of combat, love and heroism in World War II. The book tells of Ray’s life through his boyhood years, his military training, and him earning his pilot’s wings. It also describes Ray’s 25 harrowing combat missions, and his extraordinary heroism which resulted in his being awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross.
