Ask A Question


I am a collector of USAAF World War Two sterling wings. I can answer general history questions on the air war in the ETO from a USAAF perspective. I am also able to answer questions about the equipment used by USAAF airmen during WW2. Additionally I can can answer questions related to the information contained in the Pilots, Navigators, and Bombardiers information files. I look forward to your questions!

Experience in the area

I am been collecting militaria since I was 10 years old and have been reading books about the air war in the ETO from both an allied and axis position as well.
