    There are 2.. One inside and faint outside
    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul. It is one thing to reconcile these things with God, but another to square it with yourself. - Robert Leckie

    Also I really like the A9 pair there, "Rough Wear" are famous for the production of the A2 jacket

    His plane was called the "night knight". Under exclusive control of the OSS. Painted black for night operations to drop supplies to the resistance. Everything from liberator pistols to American made clothing with a fake European tag sewn in.

    Also the family gave me a dvd. Small local production of his story being involved in the carpetbagger project.

    Also 2 more items that belonged to him that I missed the first visit. Another pair of flight pants. This time A-10, and the original shirt that goes with the ike jacket.. Photos coming.
