Hero died today
Condolences on your loss, Jim. He sounds like a hero to me, too.
May God Bless him and may he rest in peace.
I am free because of him.
Sorry for your loss. You must be very proud though.
May he rest in peace.
You honor your brother with this post. His service is appreciated by all who love liberty!
May the LORD comfort you - and know that many appreciate such heroes.
Prayers for your family.
Heroes are hard to come by, especially given the over-use of the term today.
This was a true hero and thank you for sharing his story with us tonight.
Godspeed to him and your kin.
God bless and comfort you and your family, Mr. Jim.
Our country is better because of precious people like your brother.
Condolences on your loss, but remember that as long as you remember him, he’s not dead.
Also know that there are a multitude of people out here who appreciate what he did and the man he was.
Condolences to you and your family. May he rest in peace.
Sorry for your loss.
Lt. Col Hugh W. Daley, thank you for your service. RIP.
Heroes are forever.
He truly was a hero. When I passed through Guam flying on C-5’s I would often think of what it was like to fly those missions in World War 2. Those B-29 crewmen were the first to find out what a jet stream was-—the hard way. They didn’t know at first why a river of fast headwinds was up there in the stratosphere robbing them of groundspeed and fuel! The engines on the B-29 would often fail or catch fire. Every drop of gas had to be conserved—they barely had the range and duration to fly from the Marianis Islands to Japan and back.
My prayers are with his family and yours. America has lost a hero for sure.
Sorry for your loss. My condolences.
I’m retired Air Force Jim.....God Bless your Brother an respects to you and your family.
It won’t be that long until we are hearing of the last WWII vet has passed just like the last WWI vet passed last week.
That’s a beautiful tribute, Dubya.
May our Heavenly Father bless you and all of your brother’s loved ones with comfort and strength.
Newspaper status wise, history wise, I could say, ......blah. Dime a dozen.
But, you know what? That is us. The majority. ( Not comparing myself to your brother) But the pluggers, the waiters, the fill-er-iners, the quiet sentries of duty, honor, country on the ramparts of the castle of common decency...that’s what uphold the hole thing.
Congratulations. You are a luck man to have such a middle of the road, such a rock solid brother.
Consider yourself, as I do an American, to for you to of had, and us to profit in some way, from such a man.
RIP, Colonel Daley, mission accomplished.
God bless Lt. Col. Daley and Godspeed as he slips the surly bonds of earth.
Salute and Godspeed to an AF hero. Thoughts and prayers for his family and friends.
Condolences for your loss, as well as our loss, of this member of the greatest generation. Prayers up for all his family and friends.
Please accept my condolences on the loss of your brother.
My father was an AAC pilot who flew the B-24 in the 15th Air Force out of Cerignola, Italy. He passed away in 2001 at age 81. A citizen aviator, as it were.
As a Marine, I have read a lot of military history, and still stand in awe of what those warriors of the air did in World War II.
May LtCol Hugh Daley rest in peace.
I am sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing a bit of his story with us.
I am sorry for your loss Jim. Your brother was indeed a hero, and now gets to touch the face of God.
God bless you and your family.
My condolences on your loss. Sounds like a heck of a guy.
Minds of men fashioned a crate of thunder,
Sent it high into the blue.
Hands of men blasted the world asunder,
How they lived, God only knew!
Souls of men dreaming of skies to conquer
Gave us wing, ever to soar.
With scouts before and bombers galore,
Nothing’ll stop the U.S. Air Force.
His altitude is now unlimited ... Condolences on your loss, Jim
A hero indeed. Condolences, Jim.
I am so sorry for your loss. Prayers for your brother’s soul and the family/friends he leaves behind. May the Lord comfort them and bring healing into their lives. May he be remembered for his service to our Country and for being a good man. Amen.
