    Looks a very interesting read. There were many autobiography books written by veterans of all the services in the 1950's and '60s. Mostly they were never reprinted and now long forgotten.

    Here is his sculpture.

    Lest We Forget: The Mission - LEST WE FORGET: THE MISSION

    "The sculpture depicts twelve fighter pilots during a mission briefing. The lighter colored spirits of aviators already killed in action look over the shoulders of those still alive. All are destined to die. "

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
