    Thank you for posting this great story about Lefty. He has been an unsung hero.

    Good job on the extensive research. We are grateful to learn more about that fateful day and the bravery it took to fly those missions.

    Part of the story we heard as children was especially sad: Lefty was due for a furlough when he volunteered to take someone else’s place as part of this final mission.

    Hi Greg. I wish you would do the same thing for Uncle Harold Murphy — would love to know what he flew. I guess everything you can find about his time in the war. Was also wondering if Uncle Mike Sheehan wound pen a story “a day at the Res.” Always wondered how they did it all?
