dov:

I forwarded your story about your father to a friend of mine, and I want to share his reply:

Good story, Steve. I read the whole thing.

The one guy, Walter, was a 2nd Lt and co-pilot in the Army Air Corps. (The writer kept calling it "Corp," but I knew what he meant.)

Anyway, my dad was also a 2nd Lt and co-pilot in the Army Air Corps. He flew a B-24 Liberator, perhaps one that was made right down the road at the Willow Run Assembly Plant.

He was awarded the Air Medal and the Distinguished Flying Cross.

He also died on this very day, October 25, in 1991.
