You're a good story teller, Dana. I enjoyed reading the article. It was great to learn that you established the link between the two pilots, some 70 years later, and thousands of miles away from the rescue site.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
