Ken's Men - Guestbook





Comments:
My grandfather was Chris Parr. He was an Officer from what I understand. He never talked about the war much (as most men in the thick of things don’t). I do know that one of his jobs was to write home after a casualty and how do you write about how gloriously someone died when they had to literally hose them out of a bomber?! He also had to go through their footlocker and personal belongings and removed anything that might suggest infidelities in their lives (to wives or the wholesome image to their parents).
Supposedly, in the jungles where they were based your shoes/boots would be covered in a mossy mold after one night on the bare ground. So, finally, he went with a group of men with the premise that if he showed his officers rank he could keep the mp’s attention long enough so that the other men could “secure” enough lumber so that the rest of the men could step on a hard floor when they woke up instead of a wet, nasty, often flooded earthen floor of their tents.

My Father was Max H. Mayer. He was a bombardier in the 17s and flew out of Port Moresby in the early part of '43 with the 43rd,65th sq. The book,"Gore and Glory",by Crawford tells of some of his 48 missions. Those guys went through some real hell at 30,000 feet!

I just finished Old 666. Great story of a bunch of true American flying heroes and the dedicated ground crews who kept them flying despite poor food, air raids, and disease. As an amateur military historian I am convinced that the war against the Japanese Empire was won in the South Pacific by bleeding their navy, army and aviators of the cream of their top warriors. Two great books by Eric Bergerud, Touched With Fire and Fire In The Sky plus other books like 666 seem to point me in that direction. Clash Of Carriers points out quite clearly the after the South Pacific their aviators did not have the experience or flight time to stay competitive with the US aviation assets and pilots.
