Reminiscing with Dad on their B-26 flight from CA to Japan in 1953...

Vince and Dad were AF classmates. After the shortened (due to Korea) survival course at Stead, they picked up four B-26s to ferry to Japan, CA to Guam, then Guam to Japan with a C-54 shepherd, where they found low ceilings and lots of fighters trying to get down. They wound up flying north to better weather (and less fighter traffic), where they spent several (pleasant) days until weather improved to their destination. After Korea (3rd BW at Kunsan K-8), Vince got pilot training.

my grandfather.

He was my grandfather. I grew up hearing some stories about him. I have read his letters to my grandma and father. Thank you, Vince, for your service. Thank you for your sacrifice. Your eldest son grew up into a man you'd be proud of.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Major Vincent Colasuonno, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
