    Awesome seeing a video of one the former crew members getting to fly in a B-17 again (possibly their last flight) and sign the bomb bay doors. I probably saw his signature a few months ago but didn’t take a picture of it. I did take a couple that caught my eye though. :flag:

    Thank you for sharing that. What a real American that gentleman and those that served with him were and still are.

    Jack W Keith (my dad) as a 17 year old Air Cadet at Coe College, Iowa in the spring of 1943. He was training to become a bombardier. His whole class of 200+ guys were transferred to Ft Sam Houston Texas in the fall of 1943 and they became medics. He landed on Omaha Beach on the second day, still 17 years old. His medical battalion was assigned to a signal corp outfit that was also at the battle of the Bulge and ultimately he received the Bronze Star for Valor.
    I've always wondered if he would have survived the war if he had been in the Army Air Force. 60% of operational airmen were killed-(57,205), wounded-(8,403), or were prisoners-(9,838). He was a good man, he died in 2007 at the age of 83. Dad_as_air_cadet.jpg
