Ben, son of Benjamin Lafayette O'Dell, was an Air Force Pilot during WWII. He longed to write of his experiences there. Proud of his heritage, he enjoyed showing kin folk around Washington, Carter and Claiborne Counties. First contact with him was to find out about family data, but in the few years we knew him, a strong bond of respect and friendship grew. Married Emily Ruth Rogers 16 June 1945; they had one child, Linda, of whom Ben was very proud.
