To showcase where I came from, I would like to share a letter my father, Herbert Pearlman received in 1995.
Herb was a B-17 pilot who was held captive as a POW in Germany during World War II:
Feb 9, 1945 – Feb 9, 1995.
I thought I would take a minute and thank you once again for that difficult landing in Germany.
Your superior personal skills plus your dedication to training enabled you to come in with 75% power gone and through enemy fire, and in doing so you gave to me and the others a chance to experience the last 50 years.
“It has been this drive, resilience and courage that I have modeled my career after.”
