Description



Ever wonder what your father did in World War II?

How often has it been said-my father was in World War II but didn't want to talk about it? The sounds of silence related to personal war stories reverberated in so many veterans' households. Families were left knowing only bits and pieces of their loved one's war narrative. Some were left with nothing at all.

Finding Bomb Boogie is a daughter's search to discover her father's war history long after he is gone--the quiet World War II veteran and tail gunner on a B-17 named "Bomb Boogie" flying bombing missions over Nazi-occupied Europe, the bomber boy of twenty-one years, scared of heights, parachuting twice out of a plane to his eventual capture by the Germans, the resilient airman held in a prisoner of war camp for twenty-two months who spent his twenty-fourth birthday year on a forced march in one of the coldest winters in over fifty years, the daredevil who rolled down a hill during the march to escape captivity in another prison camp, and the tired, emaciated young man who finally made it home, only to fight more battles. Finding Bomb Boogie will inspire family members to learn and share their veteran's history with future generations before these stories silently slip away. "Lest we forget."
