Billie was an aircraft maintenance supervisor based in the Philippines during the Korean War.
His most memorable moment was actually an emergency flight he had to take to go see his ill brother. He flew from his training base in Texas up north to the Midwest in a B-29. It was his first flight experience and he flew in the bombardiers seats in the nose of the aircraft!
Billie is pictured here with his daughter Cynde and wife, Marilyn.
