Albert N. McMAHAN Obituary
McMAHAN, Albert N. America lost another true hero on November 12th 2017, when Albert N. McMahan, the eldest son of seven, born to Joseph Arthur McMahan and Georgie Gibbs, died peacefully at home with his family. He was 97 years young. He was born in his parents' home on a farm in Alabama. A member of the greatest generation, he fought in the early days of WWII with the Mighty 8th out of RAF Thurleigh, Germany. He volunteered for a position on a B-17 and flew his 25 missions with the 306th Bomb Group's 369th Squadron, "Fightin' Bitin'" as a tail and ball turret gunner. Albert is predeceased by his beloved wife Del and is survived by his adopted son Hugh. He will be inurned in Arlington National Cemetery to be with his wife. Albert was a retired Air Force veteran, US civil service employee, school teacher and Scout Master. He published a 650 page McMahan genealogy and provided information for his mother's Gibbs genealogy as well as his own personal history. He was a member of the GA Chapter of the Mighty 8th Air Force Historical Society, the 306th Bomb Group Historical Association and an integral part of the creation of the Mighty 8th Air Force Museum in Pooler, GA. He was the truest, red white and bluest, 100% God fearing, American bred work of art ever created and he will always be remembered by those that knew and loved him for his never ending smile and love of the Mighty 8th Air Force. His Arlington National Cemetery inurnment ceremony and services will be announced at a later date.
