"At 19, he went to war, and now at 94, he’s the only living member of his 10-man bomber crew who flew missions over Germany during World War II as part of the Eighth Air Force.

He wanted to sit in the cockpit as a pilot, but a failed depth perception test found him sitting underneath the plane as a ball turret gunner on the B-17 Flying Fortress."

"This year’s theme focuses on World War II bomber aircraft and crews, such as the B-17F Memphis Belle – one of the most recognizable symbols of World War II, and the first U.S. Army Air Force’s heavy bomber to return to the United States after completing 25 missions over Europe.

The competition is open to the first 250 public, private school or homeschooled students between the ages of 13-18, giving them a chance to showcase their writing talents while vying for scholarship funds.

Entries must be submitted via U.S. mail or email by March 2, 2018,"
