Hello, I'm looking for pictures and information on Truax Air Force Base in 1943. My deceased Dad Joseph N. Filzen road in the bombers while adjusting the Radar. My Mother who is now 92 yrs old married my dad up there in Feb. 1943. I am the youngest of five kids at 62 yrs old and would love to bring back memories for my mom. Thank you, Gary A Filzen 850-449-7958
