I am a girl that lost her 6th cousin. Forever. He was family. I knew him as an uncle. He is technically my 6th cousin. Either way it does not matter. Curtis is why I am here. Curtis' memory is why I will stay. He was misunderstood. His actions had a lot of controversy, but you didn't know him. He loved his country. He loved America... and he fought for your freedom.|

They don't make Generals or Men like Curtis Lemay anymore. My father Rurel R. Wood, MSgt served in SAC and I have his retirement certificate signed by the General. My dad was a top turret gunner on B-17s during WW2; 8th Air Force; Basingbourn England; 91st Bomb Group. He served many years in SAC; 1941-1962.
I myself served in SAC as a security policeman (see updated pic of me on my profile); there was a lot of pride in being in SAC; the General made it what it was; a superior professional striking force. SAC Security Police had a very professional reputation and were well respected thruout the Air Force. I served 1968-1989.
My best to you and your family.
Nathan E. Wood, MSgt. USAF/ret
SAC Security Police

No need for thanks, Ma'am. General LeMay started off in the uniform that I gave most of my life, and he ended his career in the same uniform from which my father and brother retired. After serving 31 years & 7 deployments in 5 wars, I understand him, and respect his courage to make the extremely tough decisions that will have pasty academics, arm chair quarterbacks and historians second guessing him forever, most of which never wore a uniform and wouldn't know a battlefield from a baseball field. God bless him....and you.

You are most welcome Joy. You must be so proud of your cousin. My Husband was in the Air Force in the 1960's and when I saw your cousins photo on F.A.G. it made me smile. So be proud of his accomplishments and his dedication to our country. God Bless You Both. Best Wishes, Judy.

You're welcome. I was at Offutt AFB in Nebraska from June of 1958 to February 1959 when I separated from the service. General LeMay was always nice to me. I worked in Communications about 3 floors below ground at HQ SAC.
|Richard S. Barzelogna||RE: Curtis Emerson LeMay|
My pleasure, Ma'am. My father and brother both retired from the USAF, and GEN LeMay was an inspiration to my father who served during his time and retired in 1974. Historians are unjustly critical of the bombing campaign he approved to destroy Japan's heavy industry and war fighting capability, but he was a master of war, clearly understood the Enemy, took the measures necessary to collapse and defeat the Enemy resulting in the War ending swiftly and thousands of marines and soldiers being spared maiming or death in a storm against the Japanese mainland. Our politicians then had the wisdom to trust his (and other combat commanders')wisdom, experience and stay out of his (and their) way. The same cannot be said of our current politicianswho seem to have a detrimental and annoying habit of playing "arm chair General" when they have neither the experience or expertise to do so. I've always respected GEN LeMay.
