Hump pilot speaks truth

I was somewhat startled to see an article in the Valley View about the underpraised and often ignored hump pilots of the CBI. My dad was a hump pilot, and even though some readers may think Hank has allowed time to exaggerate reality, I know he speaks the truth because I've heard almost identical tales.
   Most people have only been taught about the European or Pacific theaters. That's all you ever see in film or television. Thank you for educating the unenlightened. I am sending this to my father in Utah and I know he will get a kick out of it. Good job.
