These "friends" are fighter aces who also made their mark in aerial combat. Some flew with and along-side of the men of the 475th, others distinguished themselves in Europe, Asia, or North Africa. They represent the efforts and sacrifices of all Americans in World War II, and beyond. Click on a name to read a short story of each.
