Thoughts on the 58th Bomb Wing:

To have been part of this is a feeling of self-esteem and humble modesty, not like a pretentious peacock, but a demure FREEBORN MAN, who is still enthralled to have been part of it. Serving was a responsibility of pleasure. This 58th Memorial is a way of redeeming it from oblivion to posterity.

To all who have worked to achieve this testimonial, my heartfelt congratulations and felicitations.
