    What an incredible man. 16 Missions doesn’t come close to describing what those young airman went through. Flying combat missions with 88mm cannons trying to blast them from the skies an Messerschmidt fighters trying to pick them off coming and going. Your dad was one of the heros of the greatest generation this country produced. My deepest condolences to the Clemons family and snappiest salute to your dad!
