Written in 2004, it is a story about a B-26 Marauder Pilot

He graciously gave me a personal autograph in my copy.
“Billy, I would like to have you for my co-pilot!”  WOW!
Ole Indian does have a single/muli-engine pilot’s license
 with only about 300 hours flying time, but it would have
 been an honor to fly with this  WWII Pilot and Friend.
