"Aces of The Eighth" by Jack Fellows

Jerry Minton’s 80FBS Presentation

A few years ago, LTM Jerry Minton gave a PowerPoint presentation to the US Air Force Academy that highlighted the role played by the 80 FBS in Korea.

Associate LTM (and 80 FS Association Korean War Historian) Gerry Asher was kind enough to transcribe the entire presentation to a CD.

Too bad there is no audio, but none  was  recorded during Jerry’s talk.

This is a remarkable peek into one Korean War veteran’s view of life, service and sacrifice in this war which has been, unfortunately and despicably,  forgotten by many Americans.

Many thanks to Jerry and Gerry!
