Tedwords' Picture Parade

With Corb's grandmother spending time in rehab, he's decided to embark on a project of taking some of her photos and scanning them, then printing copies at the local Eldredge print shop, so everyone in the family can have access to their family history.

This photo is probably my favorite--Corb's grandfather (second on far right, kneeling), serving in the Air Force, standing with his crew. He was serving as a tailgunner in this photo. He ended up as a pilot in the early days of commercial aviation, but tragically lost his life at a young age when a military plane he was piloting lost control and crashed. Corb's mother was only five or six at the time, and her brother was not yet even born. She claims her father visited her at the foot of her bed to say good-bye the night the plane went down.
