NOVEMBER TOPIC: Glenn Smith, B-24 navigator shot down over Germany. He evaded capture for 5 days and later in a prison camp he witnessed fighting between Luftwaffe guards and regular guards.


OCTOBER  MEETING SUMMARY: Col “Speed” Wilson’s story began as a Texas teen age cowboy, progressed through World War II and Korea as a fighter pilot. He advanced to major command positions including the pentagon. His exploits include being shot down 3 times in the South Pacific and once over Korea. Especially harrowing were his night fighter missions over North Korea.
