Absolute Mad Lad.
Long story short:
Chuuk (Truk) Lagoon, 30th April 1944.
Burns lands in rough water within range of enemy shore guns to rescue the crews of four
planes, taxies several times through heavy swells to be recovered by the submarine U.S.S. Tang.
Swells that day were measured as being up to 13 feet, and this badass ******* surfed them with an overloaded plane.
