21-Oct-2015 Movie Night for October
Lou Branch, long time member of the WW2 History Club, was killed in an automobile accident on Route 25 in Marion County on 20Oct'15.  His daughter was seriously injured.
Lou had the distinction of serving in both the US Army and US Navy during WWII and with the US Air Force when it was formed just after WWII.  Lou had lots of great stories about his military career – several of which were shared with the WW2 History Club membership when he presented as part of our “Vets Speak” series in Nov 2011.  The one I particularly like is “chasing deer in the Everglades in a B47”.  Lou logged over 9000 hours in 20 different aircraft from trainers to B25s to B52s.  He was partial to the B47 and called it the best looking plane he ever flew.
Lou has been leading the WW2 Vets Group for several years and the Hangar Flyers Club for a lot longer.
Lou was a terrific guy and will be sorely missed.  As you pause to remember Lou, include his wife, Eileen, and daughter in your thoughts and prayers.
