My Dad in the War Years

When I was a young boy, I loved to watch the old black & white war movies about the air war in World War II. When I learned that my father was in the air war, I was constantly asking him which war movie was about his squadron. His answer: "None of them." Well, I asked what did you do? We bombed, strafed and harrassed the Germans. Then I came across the following picture:

The letter, dated August 1943, with this picture read:
"I am sure this is a picture only a mother would love so I am sending it to you. I hope you know which one is me."
