His war stories are unbelievable and so wonderful to hear over and over. I am grateful that my folks took the time to record him telling stories for hours years ago so I would have them forever. I have a few other pictures of planes he probably flew...but their names and what was painted on them...a bit inappropriate!! HA!
Gaylon Reed....well earned medals!!!
This has to be my favorite story to hear...it's long and someday I will write it. To tell it shortly...he brought home a bomb!!! WHAT? It had not gone off when it hit the ground next to his plane and he decided to pack it and bring it home in is luggage!! His mom freaked and had the actual bomb burried in the back yard!
This was the last time we got to see him almost 2 years ago...it was a blessing and tough for me. So thankful that he knew who I was...even though he didn't understand that I was married! Sweet sweet Pawpaw...you are amazing to me.
I love you dearly Pawpaw. I miss you.
