Another Sharing Experience

Another networking & sharing surprise. I wrote earlier about being taken on a trip in 1947 to see Jackie Robinson play baseball against the Cincinnati Reds along with my best friends. The brothers of my friends took us on the train trip from Piqua, Ohio to Cincinnati.

Well !!! .. I just received photos from the 1945 Yearbook of the Tuskegee Airman stationed at Godman Field in Kentucky and the brother of one of those friends is pictured in the book. S/Sgt. Dorsey Thorpe of Piqua, Ohio, the older brother of Kenny Thorpe was a Tuskegee Airmen. Dorsey was the chief for then Capt. Daniel "Chappie" James and his B-25 bomber crew. Kenny Thorpe is seen standing behind Toussaint Foston and I am in front of Chuck Andy in a picture of me and my best friends taken in 1944.

Thank you Mr. John Williams of California!!!!!! And thank you Facebook friends for allowing me to share my good fortune with you. Again, networking and sharing, isn't it wonderful?
