General Paul Warfield Tibbets, pilot supreme of B-17's in the 8thAf, and pilot of the Enola Gay of the 509th Composite Bomb Group; it is to your memory that I pen these few words. I was a member of the 509thBomb Group and wrote a poem for you before you made your last flight at an altitude you'd never flown before ... ONE-WAY flight upward!
I am told that your son read that poem to you as you sat in your wheel-chair and wept through the entire reading. Those of us who served with you are yet honered to speak your name. We shall see you again. As a disabled veteran of WWII, it may be soon for me. We love you still.
Dr. C. Douglas Caffey, Albuquerque, NM
