Further DUKW drift. While sifting through my father's files I came across a 1946 Saturday Evening Post article on the development of the DUKW and the efforts that Dennis and his small gang had to make to convince the armed forces to use it, and, when finally convinvced, to properly train the crews so they wouldn't sink the things. No doubt Dennis was amused at the subsequent civilian uses of the DUKW.
