      Attention! New registrants!   04/05/17

      It would appear that many of our new registrants DO NOT understand the process, for several of you are attempting to register, once, twice or even three times within the same day. For clarification, I urge you to read the rules of the forum, first. You MUST reply to the email that I send back to you after receiving your registration. Approximately 50 % of new registrants, this week, are not completing the process, and therefore, I cannot approve your membership.

    Thinking today of the service and sacrifice of Seaman 2nd Class Bryl G. Bowman, who went missing in action on this date 75 years ago. Seaman Bowman was a crew member aboard the USS Houston, which on 1 March 1942 was caught in a desperate battle with the Japanese fleet and was sunk off of the Java coast. Of the 1061 men aboard the Houston, 693 perished. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Houston_(CA-30) http://www.click2houston.com/news/ceremonies-mark-75th-anniversary-of-uss-houston-sinking On this 75th anniversary, here is to all the sailors of the USS Houston "still on duty"

    That's the Memphis Belle crew and it was signed by one of the men. The document at the top is a certificate regarding the Battle of the Bulge. My father's name and unit are inscribed on it. I received that years ago. The airplane is a signed painting (I also have the signed book) from a veteran I knew years ago. It was a Christmas present to my husband . It's Herschel H Green of the 325th Fighter Group. Here it is, unframed.

    Do you know that I have a story about the engineer who posed for this poster? His name is Vincent Leckey and you can read all about him here. I also have a signed copy of this poster, that he gave me, shortly before he passed. It's hanging in my office and I'm very proud to have it! And Gary, it looks great!
