I have a request to help A young lady
A young lady has asked for help in finding more info on her Father. This is all she has as of yet.
My Dad Frank W. Brown was a staff sergeant with the 8th USAAF. He was tail gunner on a B-17 (SLEEPY TIME GAL). With 35 missions over France & Germany. Had a forced landing near Paris shortly after the city had been freed. Another time the engineer was killed & the hydraulic brake pump & lines were punctured & the liquid in the cylinders was lost.The crew was able to repair the lines & poured pineapple juice to fill cylinders & they found tail wheels & right aileron were gone all due to flak.
I realize this isn't much but I have seen you guys perform miracles before & I will say thanks to all who try to help on her behalf.
