Special Note: As we celebrate Veterans Day on Nov. 11, we'd like to share Paul Crawford's personal account of his training and service as a fighter pilot with the U.S. Army Air Corps 14th Air Force Flying Tigers during WW-II. Paul was shot down by enemy ground fire while on a strafing run over Japanese-controlled territory in China.
"When I recall my time in WW-II, I always start by saying, I was not a hero! I was just there! That is not false modesty because it is the way I have always felt. I flew the P-51 Mustang.
