If I'm lucky, every other month I get to attend a luncheon with World War II pilots, of which my father is one. There used to be almost two hundred members including survivors of prisoner of war camps, a member of the Tuskegee Airmen, even a Luftwaffe pilot. The numbers are dwindling; it's sad to see history disappearing right before my eyes.
This image is a reminder of those we are losing and have lost. Our fathers, uncles, and grandfathers. The history will soon be only books. Remember to ask your questions now.

Note that this card was mailed before we had entered the war. December 7th was still to come.
