Semper Fi, Major Harry Knickelbein
I was informed today that Major Harry Knickelbein, USMC, had passed away. Major Harry flew a TBM Avenger for VMTB-143 from the deck of USS Gilbert Islands (CVE-107) in the last year of the war, and later flew helicopters during the Korea War. It was my honor to have him on the show three hours Veterans Day 2008. It was an amazing time and neither of us really wanted it to end.
Semper Fi, Major Harry
Here is the entire show from November 11, 2008
