Man lived quite a life. It would be interesting if there was some website that carried such links of WWII pilots that have passed away. So many. It's amazing how many incredible careers I've read about in the Washington Post obituary section on any given day.

I like the quote from the movie Ike, Count down to D-Day.

"Too many of them are with God now, we may never see their like again."
