I met an ME-109 pilot who entered aviation via that route. We had a wonderful time together with our shared experiences. We had both flown gliders and both came in second place in a war. He was luckier than me though. He was a captured and taken to the US as a POW where he was treated quite well. I came back to the US as a returning serviceman and was not treated as well.
