The Hautman Crew Letters

Look what we just received from long-time KMHS member Dr. Craig Garrett! A beautiful collection of heartbreaking, hand-written communication between mothers of the Hautman Crew, which went down on the Kassel Mission. Edward Hautman and his tail gunner were both killed; the rest became POWs. Dr. Garrett is the son-in-law of Maynard Jones, who was the navigator on that crew. We also have a delightful poem written on notebook paper in fountain pen by Lt. Jones. Thank you, Dr. Garrett!
