Ltjg. Bob Barker
|"I was stationed at Grosse
Ile Naval Air Station during August, September, and October of 1945.|
Immediately upon arriving at Grosse Ile, I checked out in the Corsair and I was assigned to a fighter pool awaiting orders to join a seagoing squadron.
When the enemy heard I was headed for the Pacific, they surrendered. That was the end of World War II.
I was discharged and returned home, a hero in my mother's eyes!" - Bob Barker
