A POW Journal from WW II

 

This web site is a representation of my father’s the time served as a P.O.W. in World War II.

My dad, Marion Wright Hazard, was shot down in a B-17 over the Adriatic Sea, near Verona, Italy on February 24, 1944. This aircraft was in the 301st Bomb Group.

Several years after his death, a descendant of one of his campmates found this journal and contacted my family and sent this journal to my family. He had left it behind on the day they were liberated.

The book is a collaboration of my dad and his campmates. All images are untouched and unaltered.




In the journal, Dad dedicated it to those who lost their lives on 42-31872. This web site is dedicated to the memory of my father and to every man and woman who has served our country in the armed forces, as well as all teachers and police officers.

Here is an interesting story that relates to his time in England.

In 2010, I had the chance to take a ride on the Collings Foundation B-17. I was glad to do this. It was an amazing experience. If you ever get a chance to ride on one of their warbirds, I strongly suggest it. These old birds are amazing and won’t be around for ever.



My dad and I got in to RC in 1976. We had a great time with this for many years. I got out of RC and got back in in 2016. I love the changes technology has brought to RC.
