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.
