This is fantastic, Dick. My Dad was in the Eighth Army and a navigator on this (well, not THIS) plane, and was shot down over Holland after a Berlin bombing, and later spent a year in a POW camp. He would have LOVED this photo. It would have started him story-telling. Gorgeous work! #1492649

Thank you Michelle. I'll take this conversation with you directly rather than through I have the greatest respect for those that serve and protect our freedom. #10372585
