Catch-22 Chapter 31: Mrs. Daneeka
According to the long-standing deal Doc Daneeka had worked out, McWatt often recorded Daneeka's name as a passenger on his pilot's log so that the fearful doctor could collect flight pay without going up in a dreaded plane. Since Daneeka's name was registered on McWatt's flight the day of the suicidal crash, Doc Daneeka is presumed dead. In response, Colonel Cathcart raises the number of missions to seventy. Doc Daneeka pleads with everyone that he is not dead, yet no one will listen. Colonel Cathcart sends his wife one of Whitcomb's generic condolence letters, which reads:
"Dear Mrs., Mr., Miss, or Mr. And Mrs. Daneeka:
"Words cannot express the deep personal grief I experienced when your husband, son, father, or brother was killed, wounded, or reported missing in action." Chapter 31, pg. 355
Mrs. Daneeka, rich from several GI insurance policies, moves away with her children.
