New Guinea

This picture was taken at Hollandia Air Field in New Guinea. My father Logan Charles is seated on the left. I have the ID bracelet you see on his right wrist. Inscribed on the back of the ID bracelet is "Fritzie loves Red." That was my mothers nickname and my father had red hair.
On occasion, I still wear his ID bracelet to work. It's heavy and is sterling silver.

Standing to the left is Radar Observer Benny who flew with my father. They became close friends and he stood up in my parents wedding. He passed away not to long ago. Benny lived in Southern California after the war.
