                                        I forgot to add my wife's father who I never met he died in 1968. He is John W. Tackett , Staff Sargent. He flew on B-24 Liberators- Gus's Bus and Hell's Belle.

                                         He was awarded two distinguished flying crosses and a purple heart. He flew with James C. Wright later to become speaker of the house.

I saw a picture of a guy down here in Florida I think, has an old raggedy p.u, and it's covered with vets signatures drives it in parades and stuff! Very cool! My mos was metal body repairman,so they had me beating dents out of foot lockers! Civilians did all the real work at Ft Benning, in 65 they made about 3.00 per hrs, not bad, minimum wage was 1.00 per hrs!
