TRIBUTE TO MY DAD
MY DAD SERVED FROM SEPT. 25TH, 1935 TO OCT. 28TH, 1957 WITH THE UNITED STATES AIR FORCE. HE SERVED IN WORLD WAR TWO AND THE KOREAN WAR. HE WAS 
BASED AT McCOY AIR FORCE BASE IN ORLANDO FLA, SELLFRIDGE AIR FORCE BASE MICH, AND WRIGHT PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE IN OHIO. HE WAS WITH THE 
STRATEGIC AIR COMMAND DURING HIS SERVICE. HE FLEW AS CREW CHEIF IN B-17'S, B-47'S, AND B-52'S. HE TOLD ME ABOUT A STORY DURING WORLD WAR TWO ABOUT SEVERAL B-17'S THAT WERE HEADED FOR AUSTRAILIA ON A MISSION, IN WHICH HIS AIRCRAFT WAS THE ONLY ONE TO MAKE IT TO THEIR DESTINATION. NO ONE KNOWS WHAT 
HAPPENED TO THE OTHER AIRCRAFT. 
I AM PROUD TO BE HIS SON AND I FOLLOWED IN HIS FOOTSTEPS WHEN I SERVED IN VIETNAM 1968, OKINAWA, LATE 1968 TO 1970, AND BACK IN THE STATES 
AT FT. DEVENS MASS. WITH 10TH SFG\ABN TO FINISH MY HITCH.
