Letter: Thanks For The Most Memorable Day

I want to thank you [Angela Anton] and Anton Community Newspapers for selecting me as a finalist in the Military Heroes Essay Contest. The flight aboard the B-17 was a wonderful and enlightening experience. Those who served aboard that aircraft during World War II were truly remarkable and heroic young men.

I also want to thank Anton Newspapers’ editor Christy Hinko, Gary Lewi and the outstanding staff and volunteers of the American Airpower Museum at Republic Airport, and the Collings Foundation for making the day most memorable.
