Only By the Grace of God is the story of Walter V. "Bud" Lawrence's experiences as a WWII waist gunner on My Everlovin' Gal, a B-24 Liberator which flew out of England. On 29 June 1944, both the Gal and the B-24 Cape Cod Special were hit by flak over Magdeburg, Germany. They collided, and exploded. Many from both crews died, but Bud and others survived only to endure injuries, the hardships of German POW camps, and the long, Black March before being liberated at the end of the war.
EchoLink is an online application that allows amateur radio operators to communicate with each other using streaming audio technology. The AFFC has established a conference server on the EchoLink network and we meet there daily following the scheduled nets. This is a great way to chat with members who are otherwise unreachable via HF. Members are encouraged to look into EchoLink as a backup for regular HF communications when propagation conditions are poor. The application is free and available for downloading to your PC.
