Dick Randolph enlisted in the Army on December 9, 1942 and was a P-47 fighter pilot with the 313th Fighter Squadron 50th Fighter group. He was “involved” with battles at Ardennes and Rhineland in Central Europe and was honorably discharged November 1945 as First Lieutenant. After he left the service he went on to Michigan Tech University in Houghton Michigan to graduate as a mechanical engineer. Dick states, “ Flying get’s in your blood. Once it does, you won’t get rid of it. Just to have the ability to move a machine in any direction you want, including upside down.” Dick built his own airplane and was avidly involved in EAA and has been a member for the greater part of almost 50 years. He served as treasurer of the local chapter of EAA. He currently lives at Fox River Assisted Living in Appleton, WI
