    Today we honor the boys that instantly became men, when they chose to falsify their birth certificates in order to fight in our stead.  In this research I also stumble upon a B-24 event that will hopefully never be forgotten.   LINKS and REFERENCES SUPPORT WARBIRDS and get BONUS EPISODES!!!!

    The Dieppe Raid

    25:18

    This one is not often talked about.  It was never as popular as the Normandy invasion has become, but it proved to be just as important to the success of D-Day.  Ground invasion aside, there was quite an air battle raging overhead.
