Spirit of Crawford County Missouri

Submitted on 16 July 2006 by Jim

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.
