Merle Mulder of San Luis Obispo, CA passed away this past week, he was 95 years old and a War Hero and bomber pilot of World War II from Tinian Island, and flew combat operations over Japan,then as life would have it, he was recalled to serve yet again in another War, Korea then one more time he was recalled once again for his third and final War Viet Nam. He came to San Luis Obispo long ago with his wife Maria and children. He was a regular downtown to many of us veterans and friends who loved him dearly. The wars made him a humble quite man, who only says war is horrible. He was the last living member of his Tinian Is. bomber squadron.
