(Taken from a letter to Will Lundy)

28 Pinegrove Road
Southington, CT 06489

28 March 1984

Dear Mr. Lundy:

When I got the journal, all I saw are the remarkable deeds of different squadrons, the 67th, 68th, 506th. But do we, as members, of the ground crews of the 66th Bomb Squad get a nice-to-know-you recognition? I'll tell you one thing, Will, they were a good bunch of guys. They were sort of, say, modest, hard-working good Joes. We even had one fellow who was an ordained minister. I think his name was Birmingham, used to show me in a kind way, cause I used to go around the vicinity of Norwich and I knew a lot of dames there, quite a few, but war hell! War can be rough and I used to be a street kid from Connecticut and before I enlisted, I did work at Hamilton Standard Propellers and you can easily guess what my job was - yep! Propellers on them 24's.

See I'm cutting short on this letter cause I'm busy but here's the bottom line, more media about the 66th I want to get even on all that dough they took in the seven-card stud. Do you know I should have put them down as dependents on my income tax. Meantime, I remain...

A friend,

Anthony Mitchell
