    I learned a few years ago that my uncle, who was an officer in the 8th Air Force during World War II, met a woman and started a family while serving in England. My long lost cousin reached out to us and we have begun a relationship. This video is a tribute to the 8th Air Force and tells the story of my uncle and his second wife!

    I really enjoyed the video. Am I to understand right that he had a wife and children in England that were left behind and he remarried upon returning stateside? I'm sure that happened quite often.

    Excellent video and a nice tribute. One small detail if I may. Vichy Celestin is Spring water, not red wine.
