Thoughts About the 58th: I entered the Military Service as a 19 year old and in the 2 1/2 years of service, I experienced academic, cultural, and geographical exposure that I doubt I would have achieved on my own, all the while helping with the military effort.
Comments: Congratulations to the force that has pursued the desire of bringing the 58th Bomb Wing Memorial to fruition.
