DFC Society Member - 100 year old veteran honored for WWII heroism
TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — We have the story of a Tucson man who reached a ripe old age after taking a lot of risks for our country when he was young. Ed Chan earned the Distinguished Flying Cross for heroism in World War II. Thursday, the Distinguished Flying Cross Society added an additional recognition of his courage.
The Pima Air and Space Museum has a restored B-24 bomber like the plane that was a major player in this story. It’s the story of a man who is a hundred years old now who did such heroic, dangerous things in a B-24 that it's a wonder he made it past his 20’s.
