My dad, Ralph Junior Morgan was a Marauder Man serving in the Battle of the Bulge out of England in a B-26B twin engine bomber. 558th was his bomber group in the 8th Army Air Force and he was a radio operator and gunner. He told me that as long as the Tuskegee Airmen accompanied their formations, there were no planes or crews lost and that he finally got a chance one day at Wright-Pat in Dayton to thank some of the gentlemen of that group in person. Dad said that they told him that that was something that none of the people they had escorted had ever done before. Through his tears, the distinguished gentlemen he spoke with were in awe of his respect and compassion. He told them that he and his whole bomber group owed them their lives. Dad passed away August 24, 2007 in Springfield, Ohio, aged 83 and 1/2 years serving the Lord here in mortality and he is in a high flight now, serving his beloved Maker and Messiah.
