My Uncle Tommy was a gifted Artist, but like all the young men back then he enlisted to fight for his Country. He became a pilot and was sent to bomb France on D-Day. His plane was shot down and his body never found, like so many other soldiers on that day. My dad kept all his letters and read them to me when I was a kid. I especially liked a letter he wrote about meeting a movie star at the USO, he was so excited It was Lynda Darnell, a pretty actress of the 40's. I still have some of his oil paintings my Dad left to me. I love telling people about him. His memory and the brave thing he did will never die.
