    The wings I thought were Ike's are actually my grandmathers brother Stillman. She has a bunch of his stuff so I'll see what I can get. All I know about him is that he was shot down in France.

    Thanks Joel

    I lost both my grandmothers and my grandfather this year so we've been sorting through all the stuff. I don't know that much about these guys so its all sorta new to me. I heard some stories about them when I was little but that went through one ear and out the other. Its funny that when I ask someone about them they always say you don't remember them. I was three years old when they were around.

    I'll be glad when this year is over........ :banger:
