My uncle was a rear gunner in one of these birds in Europe. Never talked about it though.

What a moving article! Please allow me the opportunity to pay my great respects to Mr. Stambaugh. My grandfather was in the Canadian Army (4 years in WWII), and my great-uncle did many crossings of the Atlantic in the Merchant Marine (with German U-boats infesting the seas). Another of my great-uncles was in the Canadian Air Force, assigned to India. May we never forget to pay tribute to these wonderful, volunteer heroes! Those interested in the period might want to check out my new novel, The Fuhrer Virus. It is a fictional spy/conspiracy/thriller for adolescent/adult readers and can be found at www.eloquentbooks.com/TheFuhrerVirus.html , www.amazon.com , and www.barnesandnoble.com .
