Thoughts About the 58th: Anthony had a great love of airplanes from the first model he carved as a young boy. He had to leave school at an early age due to the death of his father. When he was inducted and assigned to the Air Force, he was the proudest man on earth, and it gave him a great self-worth for the rest of his life.
