Oscar “Mick” Wagelie – B-24 Ball Turret Gunner

(Posted: May 15, 2011)

I only knew Mick Wagelie through our correspondence but we were great pen pals!!  His WWII experience was very similar to my father’s and thousands of others.  My friend is no longer with us and I will never have the opportunity to meet him in person but I can honor his memory by posting “The Story” that he wrote so many years ago and graciously shared with me.  Perhaps he knew deep down that one day I would tell it for him.  He’s another one of “My Heroes” who I’m proud to have become acquainted with and pleased to be able remember with you in his most detailed writing of his WWII experiences.  Please read “The Story” of “Mick” Wagelie . . . . . . .
