Bocks Car still resides at the Wright-Patterson AFB museum.

Thousands of WWII veterans visit it every day. They run their hands along the plane, (that is still 100% intact and probably flyable) and cry.

Another of our World War II airman gone. Very sad. My father, who piloted B-17s is now 81. He's doing OK, but I know I won't have him with me forever. We are losing that generation at an accellerating pace.

Three days after the bombing of Hiroshima, he was aboard the bomber that dropped a weapon nicknamed Little Boy on Nagasaki on Aug. 9, 1945.

As usual the AP proves they're a bunch of morons.

"Little Boy" was dropped on Hiroshima. "Fat Man" was dropped on Nagasaki.

He most likely saved my Dad's life, and by extension, mine.

God bless him.

If the japanese were talking to the Swiss they wee wasting their time. Switzerland didnt have any A bombs in the air.

They certainly knew who to call after Nagasaki.

I hate AP. Bockscar dropped "Fat Man" on Nagasaki. "Little Boy" was the Hiroshima bomb.

Well, this cautionary tale should be told to all the school children: atomic power is bad. Due to the radiation he recieved from being so close to an atomic blast, his life was cut short.

My Dads ship had been hit and almost sunk twice by Kamakazie raids. He was back near Japan dreading the ivasion of the country. He had three brothers in the service that were Army and would have got to be in the invasion. I know they and their mates are thrilled about not having to go in. We are blessed that our Heavenly Father gave us the pride of our power to end this debackle. We have all but lost that pride today by not stomping islime like the satanic cockroach that it is.

May he see the face of God, and may God bless him and keep him forever. My prayers are with hs family, and he was a great patriot and warrior. We need more like him today.

Haven't seen any articles yet today, the 61st Anniversary of Nagasaki, so I thought I'd bump this.

Happy Nagasaki Day, y'all! ;>)
