Many thanks to Iris7 for doing the research and writing for the Frank Luke threads. Other than the picture captions and one, maybe two very small alterations every thing that you read is from the crafty pen of Iris7.
Thanks to you both for this story. I like the name for the balloon crews. Balloonatics. LOL. Looking forward for the rest of the story.
Frank Luke was said to be cute but terrifying as a child. Standard parental discipline had only temporary effect.
This line cracked me up.
"A nice cooperative effort" is how I would describe this Foxhole lead story. Your editing does keep things on the main story, the main protagonist, and works OK by me.
Got to get these things down to less than 5,000 words. A challenge, that.
