Thoughts on the 58th Bomb Wing:
I am enclosing an interview with our local newspaper. It continues to express my thoughts and feelings concerning my service years. It also describes "The Crash at Ankon" which was a most memorable event. (A copy of this interview is on file in the office of the 58th Bomb Wing Memorial.)
