As many of you know from reading my intoduction in the new members section, I have a great uncle who flew B-17's from England during World War II. I never met him, and all that I know of him came from stories his sister (my grandmother) told me. A few years ago, my grandmother gave me my great uncle's e-mail address. I never e-mailed him, because my grandmother made him seem such a god-like figure I was too nervous, and didn't know what to say. After my grandmother passed away last year, I moved back to Louisiana from Australia and began a massive genealogy project, which I've been working on for about six months now, and expect to be working on for at least a year more. I've learned a lot, but I've also learned that there are a lot of questions I wish I could ask my grandparents now. So, in that spirit, I e-mailed my great uncle a few weeks ago. We have been communicating by e-mail pretty regular now, sharing photos and such. I explained to him about the genealogy project I was working on, and asked if it was okay if I could ask him questions about his military service. He said it would be okay to ask him anything. Now, to the point of this post. I have never interviewed anyone before. I would like suggestions on questions I could ask him. Is there anything you ever wanted to ask a B-17 pilot? Here's your chance. Also, are there any questions I should not ask; anything that a war veteran generally does not like to respond to? He seems very open to any kind of questions, but I want to make this a positive thing for both him and me. Thank you for any advice!
