1 min read

Lt. Colonel William Bonelli was at Pearl Harbor on the morning of December 7, 1941, and witnessed the Japanese attack. He survived, and the memories stayed with him. He worked on airplanes during WWII, mostly the B-17 Flying Fortress, and eventually got the opportunity to become a pilot. He flew 30 combat missions over Italy, and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for his service as a pilot. He continued to serve after WWII, flying tactical bombers in the 1950s.
