I received the following email and photographs from Michael Giere concerning his father:
“Sir, I found your website and email address when I was researching a Memorial Day story about my father, a life-long pilot with over 19,000 hours, who was killed in 1969. I’ve enclosed a photo taken in 1936 of my father leaning against a CW Jr when he was 17. I’ve taken the liberty of attaching the article I wrote about him. He would have been 100 yrs old this month.
(My father, second from left squatting with crew somewhere in the south pacific.)
With warm regards and best wishes.”
