Lt.Col. Blowers USAF began his career as a navigator on a B17. His aircraft went down over occupied France and he became a POW held at StalagLuft 1. He was liberated by the Russians and went on to serve through Korea and Vietnam. Qualified in numerous aircraft types.
The good Colonel died in 2003 after living a life most of us would wish for.
His son is a friend of mine and has inheritated all the Colonel's papers, orders, records, medals, uniforms, etc.
I spent most of a day reading the documents, there was the original War Department telegram from 1944 stating that his aircraft was lost, DFC citations, all kinds of things.
My friend is putting together a display of the Colonel's service and is having a hard time finding a MAC (Military Airlift Command) patch. It seems all he can find are whatever they call MAC now.
I left USAF in 1985 and it all changed since then.
If anyone has a MAC patch they would care to donate to this project please let me know.
Thank you.

I may still have one or two on my old OG507 fatigues that I refuse to get rid of. Do you only need one? By the way, we are now called AMC (Air Mobility Command).
