For an on-line friend

My Father Asks For Nothing

I believe the B-24 he’s writing about is the Collins Foundation traveling exhibit. I’ve been up in the B-17 they operate. We flew out of Plymouth, I got to help “walk” the propellers around, preflight.

I lost the original photos in the ’04 house fire, I scanned this from a framed survivor saved from the house. I took this image while we were in the air over the South Shore, but I don’t think thats what he is looking at.

Sipp’s father passed away on March 1st, 2009. God bless them all, all the old warriors.

My wife also died in March.

March is the cruelest month.
