A B17 Navigator in WWII

Meet Bob!

Bob was a navigator in a B17 during WWII.l  He flew 50 missions over Europe, from June 16, 1944 to Sept 12th.  He was flying roughly every 2 days.   After 50 missions, you could go home.

The flight surgeon told him that he needed a break after 35 missions.  So, he spent a week or two in Capri.   It must have been hell to think about going back.

Bob, thank you.   You have my deepest respect.  It was a sincere pleasure meeting you and shaking your hand.
