cousin of Maax C. Hammer, Jr., AVG 22Sep41 RIP
To remember cousin Maax C. Hammer, Jr., member of the 2nd Squadron, who died on a rainy Monday morning 74 years ago this day in the skies above and jungle adjacent to the AVG training facility at Keydaw Airfield near Toungoo, Burma.

He was trying to make a difference in helping the Chinese people....many of his fellow AVG were able to carry the mission forward and earned the love and respect of the Chinese people and of the free world.

RIP cousin, and thank you......

Tripp

I'm sorry to be late. What a nice tribute to your cousin Maax Hammer. The background, the first hand knowledge of Tex Hill, and the hope to soon bring him home serves as a reminder of his courage and of a life cut short but not forgotten.I've gone back to previous years posts, Tripp, thank you for sharing your cousins journey with us.
