“A group of 8 balls… guys who could get the most demanding jobs done to accomplish their mission under perilous conditions.”
Lt. Richard Vogh
This is who they were… the Flying Tigers 69th Depot Repair Squadron: going into countries and discovering cultures, and customs so very different than their Yankee ways – doing unthinkable jobs.
40 days of living in weather and altitude extremes that stressed the bodies of both men and vehicles. Mixed with dangerous, explosive cargo where one wrong turn could send you over a 1,000 foot drop!
This was history in the making… an untold story that has been left out of the history books.
Yes there were deaths, births, romance, life changing drama, and celebrations: those moments of life that create indelible memories! What can we learn from their grand adventure?
The Flying Tiger History Project will collect the stories of these fearless patriots through personal videotaped interviews and compile them into a book and video to ensure that this history is not lost. The nation is losing it’s WWII veterans at an ever increasing rate. It is vital that we capture and preserve this history while there are still veterans to tell it.
