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.|

I had your Curtis confused with another. When I went back and checked I realized who you were referring to. A brave man, one I certainly respect! My father served in WWII as well and my family were also Columbus, Ohio residents. I had ready an article about him and deliberately looked him up to pay my respects.

No problem at all! I enjoy the research and hope others will return the favor. :D Have a great week!

Very kind of you to respond back. Touching that you choose today to write back. So many war heroes, but General LeMay has always been a favorite of mine. I'm in debt to him for securing and ensuring the freedom and security of the USA over the span of his life. He did it with a style and toughness I simply love. He didn't mince words or actions. He was god like.
I read your bio and it saddens me to think that General LeMay doesn't always get the respect and honor he earned. War is a dirty business and the only objective is to win. Something lost to those who never lived it or took the time to learn about WW2, the Cold War, and Vietnam War. Gen LeMay was brilliant and steadfast in war and in peace. He is in my thoughts and mind. Think I'll have a cigar.
Happy Memorial Day, Joy!

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

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.
