During World War II, the story is any
city or county through a war bond drive raised a total of $105,000,
bought a P-47, the front line fighter of the era. Those who
raised the funds went to the plant and had their name put on the
aircraft, then it was shipped overseas. This plane wound up
with the 56th Fighter Group, the most famous fighter group in the
European Theater of Operation. The time period was most likely
1944. The man in this photo is Capt. Joe Curtiss.
