I have these signed prints hanging in my den, because
they recall a time in our history when America's might was unquestioned — and saved the world from the scourge of Nazism, and the threat of Japanese world domination. In the aftermath of WWII, I vividly recall the steady release of Hollywood movies celebrating the valor of America's Armed Forces — from Bataan Peninsula to Bridges at Toko Ri. I'd like to believe that with the right leadership, we can return to those days of American preeminence and exceptionalism.
The Enola Gay — Signed by Navigator Dutch Van Kirk and Weapons Officer Morris Jeppson.
The colossal B-29 Super fortress dropped the first atomic bomb, code-named 'Little Boy' on Hiroshima in August 1945, leading directly and emphatically to the end of WWII. The Enola Gay was named after Enola Gay Tibbets, mother of pilot and patriot Paul Tibbets. Limited to 1945 hand-signed 8 x 10 prints; includes an authentic piece of genuine B-29 steel skin. All WWII images are 8 x 10, matted and framed in hardwood under glass. Only the Enola Gay includes an authentic WWII artifact.
