One of America’s Greatest Wartime Aces


I just received a note from Commander Bill Paisley, a Naval aviator, who tells me that Brigadier General Robin Olds (USAF, ret.), one of our nation’s leading wartime aces (13 kills in World War II and four over Vietnam) is very ill, in the hospital, and at times on supplemental oxygen.

Paisley and others have begun a well-wishers email campaign in support of the General.
