My father durning WWII was awarded this bronze star for perfecting the Norton Bombsight.
My dad didn't think what he did deserved an award he said, " I don't understand why they want to give this to me -- it was just a 'do-hicky."
Turns out that 'do-hicky' made it possible for the bombs to hit their intended targets.
My father was with the 390th Bomb. Sq, he was a trainer and I read the letters he sent home the morning the 8th AF went out. I also read the one he wrote that same evening it said " alot of my friends didn't come back,...... I will never forget any of them...they were all good men."
