My Grandfather was a flight instructor in WWII as well! Toughest SOB on the planet but a huge heart for us Grandkids...I'll never forget his bear-hugs! He passed two years ago at age 86. He was a Lt. Colonel but I don't know where exactly he served (shame on me!) Who knows...maybe they crossed paths!?
