About my sig line.

"Bud" Anderson was a Mustang Pilot in the European theater in 1944 and 1945

During one of the largest dogfights of the war, Bud had gotten seperated from his squadron and wingman. While he was seperated he managed to "corner" a number of ME109's, while this was happening, his squadron mates were calling him on radio asking where he was, fearing he had been shot down. Anderson was quite busy at the moment and was not answering the radio calls.

When Anderson finally got a chance to repond.....He reponded with
"Can't Talk...Gotta Shoot"
