I need to get one I can play! This one is too scratched up.

Brought back up in memory of the 70th Anniversary of "Operation Tidal Wave", the low level bombing mission over Ploesti.

Kurt, somehow I missed this one the first time around. Just an incredible group to a Tidal Wave airman! It is great that Col Kroger's daughter was astute enough to make sure her Father's items were preserved and passed on to someone who knew their historical worth. I'm sure many other items have been lost throughout the years because those left behind did not have that wisdom or, sadly, just didn't care.

 

An outstanding group from an outstanding Airman! Thanks for sharing.
