Thanks Joe. The “Uncle Jacks” are gettin’ fewer and fewer, and we damned sure don’t want to EVER forget ‘em.
The B-17s and P-51s are my favs.

My dad joined the Navy out of HS and flew Corsairs off a carrier at night in the N Atlantic. I have a hard time seeing kids now days doing these types of things. I’m not sure we’re raising any more uncle Jacks.

What a wonderful video, I’m sure that most kids these days have no idea how brave their fathers/grandfathers were.

If any of you guys have never seen Band of Brothers you must. The interviews with the real life members of 101st Airborne Easy Company at the end of each segment are inspiring.
