James Leininger who lives in Louisiana, was just two and a half years old when he started talking about his vivid dreams and strong memories of being a man called LT.James McCready Huston. He went on to say that he had been a World War two fighter pilot, from Uniontown Pennsylvania, who had been killed in Iwo Jima, more than fifty years before.
At the tender age of two the boy began talking about aviation, and his knowledge of the subject was amazing. He hadn’t learned it from his parents as they knew nothing of flying or being in the Airforce.
He started having nightmares about being shot down by a Japanese plane with a red sun on the side. The child’s parents began to study the subject, and to their astonishment, realised that something extremely extraordinary was happening.
There was no way James could have known this amazingly true information! His nightmares started after his father had taken him to Dallas flight museum. But there was nothing there that would or could have started these amazing revelations.
Andrea, recalled how James would scream at the top of his voice, ‘airplane crash, on fire, can’t get out, help, and he would be kicking and pointing to the ceiling. At one stage when Andrea took James shopping, she pointed out a plane in a shop window. ‘Look’ she said, ‘It has a bomb at the bottom’.
She was astounded to hear her two and a half year old state, ‘That’s not a bomb, that’s a drop tank’. Andrea had no idea what on earth a drop tank was. he went on to tell his bemused parents that he had flown a plane called a Corsair, which took off from a boat called the Natoma. When his parents served him up some meatloaf for lunch, which he had never eaten before that day, he said ‘meatloaf, I haven’t had that since I was on the Natoma’.
Bruce, James father, decided to do some research of his own. He discovered that there had been a small escort carrier called the Natoma Bay, which had been in the Battle of Iwo Jima.
Further research proved that there had indeed been a pilot called James Huston! His plane had indeed been hit by Japanese fire and was struck in the engine. This was March 3rd 1945.
In a further twist to the story, Huston’s sister, Anne Barron, now 87 years old was tracked down, and states that after listening to little James story, she totally believes him. ‘He knows too many things, for some reason he knows what happened’. Huston’s cousin, Bob now 74 years old also had this to say.
‘To me, it’s amazing, everything the boy has said is exactly the account told to James Huston’s father and also my mother, there is no way this child could have known that’!
When James was six years old in 2004, his father took him to a reunion of veterans who had served on the Natoma. When he was there, James was able to recognise one of his old mates after sixty years.
His parents stood in awe as he stated, ‘They’re so old’!
Ever since James’s extraordinary story hit the headlines, the book written by his father has reached all four corners of the globe and has proved to be very popular.
I have read excerpts of the amazing story, and most of the really tiny proofs are the most profound of all.
Its definitely not something you can dismiss. But is it reincarnation? I believe it is, but why not read it for yourself?
