Wright Plummer, Jr 353rd Squadron

I'm sad to relay that my grandfather, Wright Plummer, Jr. passed away peacefully on November 4, 2008 at his home in Clio, SC, after a valiant, five year battle with Parkinson's Disease. He was a ball turret gunner aboard a B-17 with the 353rd squadron, and about 2 years ago, through your website, he was able to be reunited with his remaining crewmates and buddies. It gave him closure. I emailed pictures to the Raven and your web master two years ago, but I've never seen them published or on the web. I'd very much appreciate it if you could post those. If you can't find them, please contact me and I'll email them again. Also, thank you for your help in locating Granddaddy's surviving crew. I can't tell you how much it meant to him. God Bless You! Sincerely, Sandy Best sandy best 136 Gazebo Ct. Wilmington NC 28409 910-392-3388 sandybest@primesouth.org
