If I agreed with you, then we'd both be wrong
Lynn, it's always been my theory, that although, the volunteers of the AVG did it for the money or adventure, put yourself in their shoes and think that if you were a child of the depression, you could turn down that kind of money? Don't forget, these guys were ALREADY ready to fight for their country when they went into the Army, Navy and Marines.......all they did was get into the action a little earlier then they might have, otherwise......I think they though they would have been in action with the AVG much earlier, but Chennault had other ideas because he thought they needed much more training.

All Forum members:

Let's bring this thread back to the purpose of BillC's original posting....that of donating books about the Flying Tigers to your local schools to help promote a broader understanding amongst our school kids of accurate history.

Thanks for your support!

Widow of AVG pilot J. R. Rossi
Hi Julia....I'm a little late in responding to your statement that is posted here. We know well what an amazing man your father is. He and Dick Rossi remained good friends throughout their lives and would talk on the phone at least once a month. How great that he is still around, we only wish we would see him come to a reunion so everyone could visit with him. There are only 4 guys still with us: Chuck Baisden, Ed Styles, Frank Losonsky, and of course, Carl Brown.
