Yeah I messed up...I think he flew a B-17...for some reason I put B-52 but I do know better. Interesting guy really...I knew my Grandfather had 8 other brothers and sisters (like me), but I never knew one of them died in WW-II. He died in some bombing mission over Germany I think. My Grandmother just told me about him last week...she is 83 and her memory is clouded now, but his body was never recovered.
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
