Dedicated to my father-in-law Tom (Tarz) Daley. Flight Engineer on a B-17 during the II World War, he was stationed in Kimbolton, England. He flew 25 missions over Germany. He painted the nose art on the plane, it was called "Carioca Joe" after an old Disney character. Still going strong at 89 years old. Adding an update to his age he is now 92, and giving lectures to High school and college students. His memory is still sharp just like the war was yesterday.
