  1. My great grandmothers brother was a tail gunner on a b-17. I tried to talk to him about it a few times at some family gathering when I was in my mid teens (I'm almost 30). The most I ever got out of him was that he was a tail gunner and he was shot down over Germany near the end of the war. Said he spent about a week in a Luftwaffe POW camp and was then marched back to France at the end of the war. I guess being shot down makes for some not too fond memories. Said he did what he had to do. Nothing more, nothing less. I had a feeling his whole crew didn't make it out, as that's the point in the conversation I could tell he really didn't want to talk about it anymore. He knew of my interest in history and WW2 aviation, but the last thing he said to me was, and I quote, There's no glory in war. Kinda rough for a 14 year old to hear. But he was right.
  2. That's not so bad, my WIFE says I'm a nerd!!!!!!
  3. Hey guys, new to the forum. Wondering if I could get in on this, sounds neat. BTW I model 1/35 and 1/72 armor and 1/32,1/48,and 1/72 aircraft. I do it all!:-) Oh and I have a tattoo of the Flying Tiger from the AVG(hence my screen name) on the right half of my back just to show you I'm serious.
  4. I think it matters. Why teach if your teaching inaccurate info?
