Remembering Dad & Crew on Veteran’s Day 2013

(Posted: November 11, 2012)

I could not let the day pass without remembering my Father’s crew – The Cook Crew who I affectionately refer to as MY crew. . . . .

I have studied this photo and the names so many times that they are like family; they are a very special crew to me!

                                     Jay Joyce, Radio Operator

                                     John Kyler (Dad) Ball Turret Gunner
