Bruce Martin

See Document 1 below to see DFC Award

See "Raven" article, May 2006. I want to notify you of his death on 10/06/11. He was very healthy, & his mind sound & this death a shock to all. He went quick & peaceful; having lamented to me a few days prior, " Wish I could ride in a helicopter as I never have". Got his wish on "Mercy Flight" (which he rallied to enjoy). In hospital bed,as his room TV showed the Thunderbirds flying in the sky (true story) he stated, "Ive flown my last flight & I'm going home to be with Peg", his departed wife. He closed his eyes & went "home" in less than 2 hrs.
