Anna (Flynn) Monkiewicz There were no decorations, no medals indeed, nothing to distinguish Anna's service as a Jug jockey, save perhaps a hasty landing in Goldsboro, North Carolina when the cockpit of her Jug began unaccountably to fill with raw gasoline. At 800' bailing out was out of the question; she circled back and landed, departing the ship before it stopped rolling. (no fire, but badly burned feet and ankles from the high octane gas.)
