Webmaster’s Note: Bob Bramble was a very friendly and generous
individual. In fact, most of the
squadron’s World War II history on this site is due to his assistance. I was honored to meet with Bob at
Barksdale AFB one say and to spend several hours talking about the 17th
Troop Carrier Squadron in World War II.
He was one of the original crew members.
