Ain't many of these guys around, now one less. Be a nice gesture for our embassy to send a few Marines, and others, to the funeral, if they would.
Yes we're slowly losing them.
My uncle was in 487th bomb group. He was a gunner/togglier. They flew 33 missions including Battle of the Bulge and Dunkirk. The entire crew is still living and they now meet yearly. There is a book written about them titled 2 Ladies and 9 Gentlemen From Hell.
