Eddie Rickenbacker defied death a handful of times growing up in Columbus, Ohio. He figured God was intervening. It was hard to argue the point after he survived accidents as a race car driver, being America's top combat air pilot of World War I, a civilian plane crash that killed half the passengers, and a World War II mission that left him adrift at sea for 24 days.
