During World War II, my father served as a waist gunner in the Eighth Air Force on a B-17 Flying Fortress. While he was stationed in England, he kept a photo album filled with pictures of his companions, the planes that came back damaged, and most of all, of friends and family back home.
One of my nephews spent countless hours scanning the album as well as a pocket diary and a scrapbook filled with newspaper clippings that my grandmother put together.
Iíve selected this image from my father's album for this yearís Motherís Day layout. Itís simply captioned ďMary Jane 1942Ē.
