take it easy on my Grandfather will ya! My Grandfather served with the 839th Bombardment Squadron in Miami (After Pearl Harbor it was re-designated the 8th Antisubmarine Squadron (Heavy), as a Flight Engineer/Top Turret gunner, the squadron saw service in Cuba, Trididad, Brazil, to name a few.

It was re-designated and retrained in late '43 and absorbed into the Mighty Eighth, where my Grandfather continued to fly and fight until grounded from severe burns due coming home in a shot up aircraft (He never said much about that, just that they got shot up, he got severely burned, but they made it home).

And a photo, he is on the right with a buddy in the waist window.


Hope you enjoyed a little piece of 'The Hunters' history as it pertains to my family.

But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you… And I will beat you.
