I have researched and published a story about Smith L. Carter "Dugie" who graduated with this class and is pictured on page 21. He was the bombardier aboard the B-24 Liberator that was nicknamed the "Kansas Cyclone". His bomber participated in the air raids in the Battle of Kwajalein in the Pacific as part of Admiral Chester Nimitz's "Operation Flintlock". He would survive World War II and be awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross with 1 oak leaf cluster and the Air Medal with 3 oak leaf clusters. He an his wife Wilma raised four children in his hometown of Shelbyville, Texas where he worked in the construction business. Smith Carter died of a heart attack at the age of 63 on April 14, 1982. He is buried in the Carroll Cemetery, Shelby County, Texas. He is considered one of Shelby County Texas' hometown heroes. He certainly is one of mine.
