    Remembering Bryl G. Bowman

    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.

    Sure thing. As far as the loved one, that's something I have to write about to you in private. It's a longgggg story... Here's where the image hangs among others. This is one wall in our entertainment room.

    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!
