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.
