Lieutenant Fred Nelson on the left, hooch-mate and friend, and my Copilot on this day.  On the right is my Flight Mechanic that day, Dee (actually SSgt. Stephen T. Digirolamo, but can you blame us for calling him "Dee").  Fred was one of those amazing New Yorkers who didn't have a driver's license when he joined the Air Force, but managed to drive airplanes just fine.   Photo taken at Plateau Gi.
