Richard Bong, and I didn't have to look it up bit did to confirm.  

He flew the P38 Lightning fighter.  My Dad was a POW in Changhi prison during WW II and used to tell me of dogfights he saw from the prison. He knew that if American fighters, later identified as P38's were overhead the war was nearing an end.

Because of his stories that was always my favorite WW II aircraft.

Wow.  This makes me feel rather insignificant.  Have you lived up to the expectations of Mr. Loisel? 

He was from a different time and made fromome different stuff. He was the most humble or one of the most humble men I ever knew.  An American hero teaching high school kids physics with a smile and a positive attitude.

I would like to think that in some small way my service to community through scouting would live up to his expectations.
