Great story, it rings close to home as my Dad was a WWII pilot as well. Thoughts go back to all the men and women of our grestest generation, and the sacrifices they made to keep us free. Thanks, Mr. Cox Sr. for your sacrifice; and thanks to all our veterans for their service. We owe our freedom to you.
