Thank you for your service, Zane.
Today, I attended the estate auction of my neighbor and good friend who passed a couple of months ago.
Clarence was a flight engineer on a B-29 in Korea.
He completed his missions without incident aside from a single engine fire.
After the war, he returned home and married his HS sweetheart who had been working for Crosley in Cincinnati, OH while waiting for him to return from the war.
They raised six very good kids and sent all 6 of them to college while Clarence worked as a laborer in a local distillery. His wife, a very hard worker at home, never worked outside of the home. All 6 of his kids turned out very well.
I am proud to have been considered a friend of Korean War Veteran Clearance, who was also a Ford tractor collector.
