For awhile, I will showcase some of the items found in my dad’s WWII memorabilia.

During the “Operation Market” of 23 September 1944, my father was the co-pilot of a C-47.  According to one of the pages in his photo album, “The 1st pilot asked me to reboard our flight path so that we would always know just where we were.  We were towing a glider filled with medical supplies and people.  The flight path is marked at left and bottom of map, and stops at the point that our glider pilot released the tow rope, several miles from DZ.   We turned right, ‘Hit the deck,’ and returned to Fulbeck.”

I am including 2 pages of my father’s maps.
