I would almost say the story is too short, I want to know so much more. I trained with his friend Noel Agazarian's sister Monique, who in herself was very gallant as a transport pilot. But I want to know what happened to Dick: Did he marry; did he have children; what about the other operations - did his hands recover?
Incredibly brave in every way, I just thank him and people like him for the fact that we are part of the free world.
