    I hope you do find the time soon to write about your friend, Kirby Cowan.  How many of all the airmen survived I wonder.

    I love the Documentary channel and I seem to recall watching a piece several months back about airmen from the Pacific during WWII who went down, but nothing about this Buchenwald story.

    Have a good Sunday.

    As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. John F. Kennedy

    •  I last saw Kirby about five years ago. (7+ / 0-)

      I got a message from his son that he had been shopping with his wife when he suddenly collapsed and was gone.  I cried.  My life has been enmeshed with Kirby's life since 1946.  I was not able to make the funeral, but needless to say, he got full military honors.

      The general who wins the battle makes many calculations in his temple before the battle is fought. The general who loses makes but few calculations beforehand. - Sun Tzu
