My father was Master Sergeant with the US 10th Army Air Force (1943-45).  He was with the 330th Aerodrome Squadron that serviced and maintained the fleet C-47 Skytrains of the 10th Combat Cargo Squadron.  He was the squadron's crew leader of engine mechanics.  They served in the China-Burma-India theater (the forgotten theater of WWII)... flying supplies, troops and materiel from India over the Himalayas to Kunming, China.  After the Imperial Japanese were forced out of Burma, their squadron was based out of Myitkyina... and later towards the end of the war they operated out of Shanghai.  My dad passed away in March 2011 at the age of 89.  He was awarded the Soldier's Medal for saving a man's life who was drowning in the Irrawaddy River in Myitkyina and their squadron was awarded the Meritorious Unit Citation (first one awarded in the CBI) for setting supply tonnage records over the Himalayas.
