WW2 Ace Autographs

Recommended Posts

About 25 years ago, my former secretary provided me with these autographs. Her father was a WW2 fighter pilot and knew I was a fan of aviation. He had Hub Zemke and Bob Johnson sign these photographs, which I believe were from a pamphlet that was issued to the attendees. Anyway, I thought they were pretty cool and that you guys would like them. For the life of me, I can't remember my secretary's last name!

Forgot to mention that the autographs were obtained at a convention of former WW2 fighter pilots....

Was able to recall the last name of my former secretary - Holtmeier. From there, I was able to locate her father, Herbert R. Holtmeier. According to his obituary (1995), he flew as a wingman for Gabreski and Johnson with the 61st Fighter Squadron! Would explain why he was at a reunion with Zemke and Johnson!

Cool! I wrote to Gabreski when I was a kid and he sent me a great autographed 8 X 10 and a handwritten letter. Very nice man!
