WORLD WAR ACE BACK IN NAVY SERVICE
By Associated Press
CORPUS CHRISTI, Tex., April 15.Lt. Kenneth Russell Unger
, 44, a World War I ace with nine German planes to his credit, is learning to fly and fight the World War II way.
More than 10,000 hours of flying are in the book of the Madison, N.J. pilot whose refresher training makes him a student officer at the Naval Air Training Center here.
A Royal Air Force flight commander in the latter days of the First World War, he won the Distinguished Flying Cross after downing his nine Germans.
A post-war career of barnstorming, commercial flying, brokerage and air port operation preceded his call to active service as a naval reservist last February.
