Every successful man has learned from past mistakes; every generous humanitarian started with a decision to give the first gift. Irvin Wilhite, honored by thousands, is both successful and generous. This is his story. My parachute hadn't been repacked since we left Miami-and we'd given the job of cleaning our room to Italian POW's in Eritrea. I had used it as a pillow, so I was really worried about it opening properly. I remembered all this just as I jumped out into the dark. Pulling the metal ring to open my 'chute, the ring came loose in my hand. I thought wryly, "Yeah, just like I suspected. Those Italian prisoners must have messed with it." I fell faster and faster through the night air, knowing that without an open parachute, I would not survive. I braced myself for the inevitable.
