Hans Hendrickson recounts a tale of a dogfight, in which he was hit in the shoulder by Der Morder. He shot down Der Morder's plane, and landed his plane at a U.S. Base. Der Morder survived the crash and hid at the same base, using a stolen uniform. Hendrickson watched a U.S.O. show while he recovered, but an enlisted comedian, Randy Daye, was arrested for insulting officers during his routine. Hendrickson asked Randy why he insulted the officers, and concluded that the man was a coward, and stormed off. However, some dynamite went missing and it was Randy Daye that figured out that Der Morder had booby-trapped Hendicksen's plane, and saved him. Der Morder escaped.
