She was very generous and gave a very nice luncheon in the fall of 2009 during the Library of Congress symposium to honor Asian-Americans who fought for freedom during WWII.

My dad had a book on the Flying Tigers and would point out Uncle Lou's name and tell me a story about his big brother.  But they were far enough apart in age that he didn't get to spend a whole lot with him.  But he never mentioned him having a child so either Uncle Lou didn't know, or he just never told the family here.

Those planes were sent to West Africa in USAAF warpaint and flown to Kunming that way by AVG and civilian ferry pilots and maybe a few US Army pilots. They were repainted in Kunming by the AVG ground crews. All this is covered in detail in Daniel Ford's history of the AVG

The AVG Tomahawks (strictly speaking, they weren't P-40Bs but a variant built for the British) were taken from a lot being built for the RAF. They weren't Lend-Lease, which came in later. China paid for them directly to Curtiss-Wright, and paid General Motors for the engines, using an American loan. Then the USAAF later bought the left-overs back from China in July 1942.]]>

Neither E model has squadron decals. Even more interesting is Tex Hill's being a part of the 23rd air group but still having Chinese stars. Some one know the answer to that?!
I bought the decal sheet, I'd like to get the most out of it, and Squadron decals add a lot in my mind. But I still want to stay historically accurate.]]>
