hi Paula, just ran across your thread. my father was top turret gunner on B-17 -Fogio, Italy. crewed in over 50 missions and receive a letter of thanks and a certificate for missions flown. I recal him receiving these but over the years they were lost. his crew was one of the 12 of 26 that made it back from the memingen raid also crewed on first shuttle to Russia. I would really enjoy a copy if possible.
