Ed Hale was a nose/tail(?) gunner in WW2 European campaign. He was shot down twice, with the final time resulting in capture and internment in a German POW camp. He received multiple Purple Hearts. I have his diary from the POW camp, letters home to his wife JimoLee, as well as many photos including the ones attached here.
