We truly don’t expect to win, but now understand why nominees say, “just being nominated is amazing.” It is!
Many thanks to the Air Force Historical Foundation.
We should also take a moment to again thank everyone who helped us on this journey, including our terrific publisher, Casemate, Char Baldridge, Historian, 359th Fighter Group Association, Peter Randall, Rene Burtner, Ed Trumble and everyone at Leanin' Tree, Inc., and so many others. You know who you are!
Although the veterans of World War II are all but extinct their legacy surrounds us. Every time we read an uncensored newspaper, practice the religion of our choosing, cast a vote, or do any of a hundred little things we take for granted, they are there, looking over our shoulder. Let us never, ever, forget the members of the armed forces who put themselves in harm’s way then and continue to do so today. We owe them so much.
