    Default My Great Uncle's pocket knives

    I know these are not from the War, but I wanted to upload them. These belonged to my Great Uncle . He was a Lieutenant, and completed 35 missions over France and Germany. He flew in a B-17 flying fortress. Enemy flak took out his oxygen system and the brakes, but he flew the plane 500 miles to saftey. He left these behind before he left for the war. My Grandfather found them and gave them to me along with his Medals, decorations, etc. I wish I knew him. He died on U.S. soil, due to an air accident.
