Okay, maybe that’s being a bit dramatic, and a lot of the interview is just the life and times of Arnold Crump, but I’ve never heard him talk about his war experiences before now.
http://www.harrellshistory.org/ is cataloging the experiences of veterans from all wars, but appears to be focusing on WWII at the moment and my happened to meet up with my Grandfather Crump, T/Sgt. Arnold W., 706th Bomb Squadron, 446th Bomb Group, 8th AAF, ETO; Army Air Transport Command, India, CBI
I’ve loaded the videoes onto livestreaming for those interested
Vodpod videos no longer available.
They are long interviews and he’s a bit hard to understand at times, but for me at least it was a very interesting interview and I can’t help but brag about him. They’ve even posted some charming photographs!
That’s my studly grandpa
My pinup Grandmother
Neat photo grandpa took from above the clouds
He also give his address to the internet so send him fan mail if you want but please don’t go blow up my grandpa!
