I find it interesting to have a small town boy (Red Level, Alabama) involved in such an elite unit as the AVC. Ben Foshee was killed in a bombing raid while attempting to get to his plane. It is my understanding that his life may have been saved through amputation of a leg, but he refused such, awaiting attention from an American doctor. I recently had the duty to visit the cemetary where Ben is buried and took the picture of his grave. It had been reported that it had been vandalized, and as you can see someone removed Ben's picture from his head stone.
