Thoughts About the 58th: You have read my mind. I have thought this before. Sometimes I think how we did it. Several times I thought how all these men were picked to train and assigned all these men to the 58th Wing. I was very happy to work along side of many men so well trained and dedicated to bringing the Japanese to their knees. My best to all the men of the 58th Bomb Wing and God bless them.
