One of our treasures..

TSGT Lou Seiberling receives Air Medal from General Matheny
This may sound like a tribute or an obit but nothing could be further from the truth. We have been blessed with the presence on many occasions with a visit from one of our more august and historical members, Major Lou Seiberling. Most recently, Lou attended our Comm Room commemoration celebration this past July and, Lord willing, he will continue to visit us and regale us with tales of his World War II adventures as a B-24 Liberator waist gunner.

As a fallout from his July visit, Lou -- with the help of his friend -- penned a short narrative if his service career. Please enjoy this great piece of American heritage; maybe we can get Lou to stop by some evening and do it in person:
