After a long absence I am back with e-mail. I'd like to extend a hearty Happy New Year to all the new friends I made over the past year. It was not such a good year in general but was mighty good to me. I'd be glad to hear from anyone, especially Jug Jocks and other fighter types though six years in the BUF brought in some B-52 types, too. All are welcome. There's no talk better than combat flying talk. We're all way up there in years now so guard what health you have left with all your might. Sincerely, Frank Lewis, combat tours in P-47, P-51, F-84.

I'm trying to find anyone who flew with or knew my uncle, John "JD" Davis Motsenbocker. Uncle JD was shot down in May '44. Unfortunately, JD passed away many years ago, but I'm gathering information for my father and for the family.

I am doing a report on D-Day and my father was one of the pilots who flew a P-47. He was with the 406th Fighter Group within the 303rd Fighter Wing. If anyone could provide me with possibly a bit of details of being the first group in that night of June 6th. Would you please let me know. My father was LT. COl. Robert Rieschl. Thank You.

Steve-----"Thoroughbred" was WZ--E 42-26590 of the 84th FS / 78th FG at Duxford UK. The pilot was 2/Lt. Lawton.E. Clark ; he was killed in it Sept. 10 1944 when he flew into the target when strafing a marshalling yard at Heilbronn, Germany. It was thought that he had a depth perception problem as he had already flown into a couple of trees which he had marked on the plane with his missions. 226590 was delivered in natural metal finish and had dark green top surfaces added with a sky colour below (probably RAF colours). Hope this is of help Nick

405th Fighter Squadron of the 371st Fighter Group. I’m trying to find anyone who was with, or their relatives who were with this Squadron and Group during WWII. My father was Second Lieutenant Arden Williams from Santa Monica, CA who’s now deceased. Although I have countless documents, photos, etc., I’d love to obtain any additional information available to pass along to my son with his belongings.

I want to thank all american soldiers for what they did for europe - great courage! I was born in 1952 - but i think we owe(is that the right word?)the american soldiers a lot. I often think about the famillies to the fallen soldiers. I was looking for Thunderbolt - and find this side. I wish the best for you *s* Regarding Gert Dam

I am interested in finding anyone (or relatives of anyone) who served with my grandfather, First Lieutenant Bryant L. Cramer, in the 514th Fighter Squadron, 406th Fighter Group, shot down over Germany on August 7, 1944. Bryant was apparently the unofficial barber of the group and went by the nickname "Cashy". Any information would be appreciated by his only daugher, my mother, who was born right after his death. Thank you!

I wandered in while looking on the web for some particulars concerning the P-47 for a fiction piece which includes a fighter group that escorted the Op. Aphrodite/Op. Anvil attempt. I found what I was looking for pretty quickly, but ended up staying. These accounts are fascinating; I could read these stories all day! My thanks to the pilots who shared their experiences, and the Association for making them available to us.

Hello everyone, I am currently looking to purchase photos of a P-47 flown by the Tuskegee Airmen. I want to build a large (100 inch wingspan) radio control model to compete with across the country. Can any one help me or point me in the right direction for photos of the "Jug"? Many thanks. Chic

I wish to say thanks to all WWII veterans for your sacrifices and courage. I owe my freedom to you. You are all heroes to me. I have always been particularily fascinated by WWII fighter pilots, especially Thunderbolt pilots. I am also a collector of WWII items used by veterans, as I consider the items to be valuable historic artifacts that should be cherished along with the sacrifices and legacies of the veterans. Its important that these items, and the experiences of these men are preserved for future generations. I own original named A-2 jackets or helmets worn by pilots with the 56th fighter group, the 373rd, the 358th, the 507th and the 318th. All are P-47 groups. Please allow me to mention that I would greatly cherish, and pay VERY well, for orginal named A-2 jackets and other flight gear or dress uniforms from WWII fighter pilots. If anyone would consider such an option, please e-mail me at: hockeyhistory62@yahoo.com Thanks again to all vets for the freedom you have given me. I don't take it for granted and I do understand I have it because of you and your comrades. God bless you all, and your families. Mike

I am very proud to say that LTCR Harry T.Stewart,Jr. USAF is a personal friend. He is one of the famous, "Tuskegee Airmen". Harry parachuted from a crippled P-47 into my community in 1948. He has since been adopted by my town of Van Lear. Harry was the Grand Marshal of the 20th Annual Van Lear Town Celebration held in August 2005. Our local post office issued a special postage cancellation with the P-47 incorporated into the design. Thanks, Danny
