S. Army pilot.  His Captain Midnight code name was given by a general who sent him on a high-risk mission from which he returned at the stroke of 12:00 a.m.  Captain Albright was recruited to head the Secret Squadron, an aviation oriented paramilitary organization fighting sabotage and espionage during the period prior to the United States' entry into World War II.  The Secret Squadron acted both within and outside the United States.
