Nicole Andrews submitted this photo and note: “This is my grandfather Carl Matousek, here age 21, from Lime Ridge, Wisconsin. He was awarded the Air Medal for flying over 100 hours of bombardment missions with the 10th Air Force in Burma. An armor-gunner on a B-25, he had 36 missions.”
Nicole adds: “I am not sure if this plane was the one in his missions or not. He passed away 11 years ago and I miss him like crazy.”
