Tribute to our Ground Crews
We have heard stories of administrative and support personnel who felt they did not contribute to the war effort because they did not see any combat. Nothing could be further from the truth. The clerks, cooks, office personnel, mechanics, medics, nurses, chaplains, electricians, supply personnel and everyone else who did not fight combat were just as essential to the war effort as those who flew on combat crews. Each and every job was crucial. The war was won as a team effort and every person who served their country to the best of their ability was a hero. Below are photographs of many of our Unsung Heroes. We are deeply in their debt for preserving our freedom.
