Our Veterans

My father piloted B-17’s in WWII, flying 36 missions out of England with the 8th Air Force’s 457th Bomb Group. In the course of a 30 year military career, he again served during wartime as a USAF civil engineer in Vietnam.
Steve’s dad, served our nation as an aircraft maintenance engineer in the 15th Air Force's 464th Bomb Group which flew B-24’s out of North Africa and Italy during WWII.
Today, we salute the veterans in our family, as well as all members of the military, past and present, who have given so much to our country.
Many thanks.

  1. Interesting to see old pics of grandparents, nice tribute to them and other veterans and military. I don't remember seeing many of your dad, but from looking at this one I can see his looks in our family some. By the way, I like your new blog header picture, very pretty.
