My daughter has a History Fair Project on the 555th PIR this weekend and I give you the background on how this came to be. Then we are joined by documentarian John Brown at the Mount Dora MVPA Winter Rally to discuss his upcoming project and how he found himself traveling around the country tracking down and interviewing WWII Vet.
We love when our listeners share photos and stories of friends and family members who served during the WAR with us.
The photo above is a picture of Bob Hope in front of “Growin Pains”.
Assigned to this aircraft was George Maxwell Hemingway.
George Maxwell Hemingway was assigned to the 88 TCS, 438 TCG, 53 TCW 9th Army Air Force. Some family members believe that George Maxwell Hemingway is the Gentleman in the front row second from the right but haven’t been able to confirm this.
Crew Chief George Maxwell Hemingway is the grandfather of Matt Stancil one of our listeners and friend of the show.
Thanks for the Share Matt.
This week Army Vet and fellow reenactor Eric Hauser drives down from Tampa for an in-studio interview. First I took him around Cape Coral to show Eric all of our WWII and Military Based Monuments and memorials as well as a trip to the South West Florida Military Museum and Library. We also give a wrap-up on the Lakeland Ga Event, How Eric got into reenacting and his passion for WWII, plus much more.
