Cranky Yankee: Thanks for the memories. You may no thear much back when you take the trouble to write a long post but people do read them and enjoy them, even if they don't let you know.

I remember when I was a six year old or so, I had a jigsaw puzzle that was a picture of Kelly's B-17, on fire, and streaking towards a Japanes cruiser which it presumably destroyed. I had always believed that it was literally true until I saw it questioned in this thread.

I also remember that Kelly had a son. I think that one of the awards that went to his father was that his son got an automatic appointment to West Point. I am not sure whether or not that was one of the privileges of winning a Congressional Medal of Honor.
