I have a Great 1/2 Uncle that died during WWII at the Battle of Luxembourg and I shared the story with Jack and Shawn about the postcards he had sent previous to his death. One of them said, "All this scribbling is shaky, but it's only the cold---". We were lucky that he loved his 1/2 sister (my Gma) so he wrote lots of postcards and letters. While preparing my mom's place for sale, I am now in possession of his Purple Heart and the Flag. Gma kept all of his postcards and letters and my mom laminated them. I am scanning them so that I can share them with the rest of my family.
Jack also related the information that more people died in WWII in this aircraft that took nine men to man it. I was just reading that the Flying Fortress dropped more bombs in WWII than any other aircraft. As of September 2011, 13 airframes remain airworthy, with dozens more in storage or on static display.
