Thoughts on the 58th Bomb Wing:

It was a great honor to serve with the 58th Bomb Wing -- great pilot and crew. There are still seven members of our crew alive and we have annual reunions in Florida. Crew 99: A/C Virgil Brazil; Pilot, Joseph Loftus; Navigator, Leonard Fuller; Radar, Paul Montgomery; Gunner, Gilbert Meyerowitz; Gunner, Milton Gross; TG, Robert J. Fox.

Mr. Fox passed away June 7, 2016.
