    Found this the other day while going through the safe. Its my father's mission tally for sorties flown with the 829th BS 485th BG with the 15th based in Verona, Italy. He was a ball turret gunner in a B-24. After he finished his tour he went stateside to train in B-29's for the Pacific theatre. Luckily the was ended before the was deployed. His older brother was a B-29 crewman and killed in a training accident.

    No doubt that this was the greatest generation.
    Dated a girl and when her Grandmother passed we were at her father's going through some things. I knew her grandfather had been an Army Air Corp bomber pilot. As they are setting things out first was a set of Air force epilets with Birds, then a set with 2 stars. I'm all like "wait what?" They further produced tie tacks for Sabres, F4 fantoms, and others, mach 1 club and mach 2 club. Her brother said the story was he didn't quite hit mach 2 but was "close enough". Her GF became commander of the Illinois Air Guard if I remember right. After retirement he had a chance to go up in an F16? But fell off a ladder trimming trees and missed his flight.

    I call ...............going to shoot 5 stand in a league tonight. One of life's great pleasures is shooting a truly fine shotgun!

    Heading up to PA next week for some sporting clays.

    There's a skeet shoot on the 23rd (registered) at the IWLA, Damascus, MD on the 23rd. I'll get a chance to use Mr Etchin's gun with the sub-gauge tubes then.
