    Richard W. Sherman, better known as Dick Sherman, flew with the 308 Bomb Group, 11th Bomb Squadron under Gen. Claire Chennault's command. Dick had 52 combat missions under his belt when he was shot down over the South China Sea on Feb. 13, 1944. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, Air Medal with two oak leaf clusters, and the Purple Heart. He volunteered to serve again with the 123 AC&W squadron in 1961. Dick retired from the military in 1968.

    Dick is now a painter of his memories.
