100 Year Old U.S. Army Air Corps in World War II

100 Year Old U.S. Army Air Corps in World War II

This month's Patriot Highlight is Alvin Stasney.

Alvin's daughter, Rebecca, shares with us the story of her dad. Alvin was a WWII Veteran and Proud American. In 1943, Alvin joined the U.S. Army Air Corps in World War II as a navigator of a B-24 in the 392nd Bomber Unit stationed in Wendling, England.

He flew 30 missions over Europe and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross.  After the war, Alvin returned to Crosby, Texas where he built a dry-cleaning business and purchased a Mobil Oil bulk distributorship that delivered fuel to area farmers and businesses.

Alvin's greatest devotions in life were to his Catholic Faith, his family, the community of Crosby and to our great nation. Rebecca shares, "I speak of my father with 'Great Pride'. My belief, is this is how all humans should be towards their God, their country and family.  If that ever happens, the world would be a much better place to live".

The Flag Shirt thanks you Rebecca, for sharing your story about your dad and is service to this great country.
