The day is Saturday, July 4, 1942. The world is at war – again.

At Wujiaba Airport in Kunming, China the United States Army Air Forces‘ (USAAF) 10th Air Force out of New Delhi, India has created the China Air Task Force (CATF) and activates the 23rd Fighter Group under the command of Brigadier General Claire L. Chennault.

What is really interesting about this historic event  – and I just realized this – is it directly impacts at least two of our families.
