Happy Birthday to William W. Louie

We met William W. Louie while researching the 354th Fighter Group for our documentaries. He was a sergeant in the 356th Fighter Squadron. One of his duties was painting the nose art on the planes. (He even painted my relative's nose art back in 1944!) William is featured in many of our youtube videos.

William became an architect after the war. He still paints and creates works of art!

I am privileged to be on his Christmas card mailing list. Every year for the last several years I have received the cards with his new paintings on them.

William is celebrating his 91st birthday tomorrow on January 18, 2014. Happy Birthday, William! Thanks for all you have done for us! All the best, my friend! (Thanks for letting me share your artwork on this blog - they make great screensavers and computer wallpaper!)
