My Weekly Photo Challenge: Courage

Here is a photograph of US Navy Sea-Plane pilots during WW2 in the South China Sea. One of these heros is the father of a long time friend of mine.

I met him last year in Virginia.

It’s hard to believe this 96 year old charismatic, affable, gentle, man was able to summon the courage to fly non-stop sorties in all weathers and in the face of stiff oposition.

We all have our heros.
