...this is a story of passage. And it is the story of a place.. a place where a departing generation entrusts its cultural legacy to those who will carry on. A place where they tell - in some cases for the last time - what it was really like. The stories are as countless, yet as distinctive, as snowflakes. For just a little while longer we can hear them directly from the mouths of thsoe who wrote them. We can hear many of them here.. in a forum called "Warbirds in Review." "I smiled, I teared up, I laughed, I recalled history and friends and people lost whom I never met.. The writing is beautiful... on point, thoughtful, simple, clear, moving".
