My Special Tribute To A Special Uncle

490th Bombardment Squadron (CBI)
"Burma Bridge Busters"

If you're here on this page, you must have clicked on the special link on the Military Service page. That means you also know that we support our military and are very proud of those in our family who have served this great country, without hesitation.

But in this one case, I have an Uncle who is very special to me, and who served during WWII in the CBI (China-Burma-India) theatre and who, as a Staff Sargent and Tail Gunner on a Mitchell B-25, has been interviewed and video taped by the local newspaper (Beaver County Times) during their series on "Veterans of the Beaver Valley".

Edward M. Anderson was given a DVD containing the interview and the link below will open that video in your default "media player". At least we hope so. If you're using Windows, the Microsoft Windows Media Player should work fine. If you have trouble getting it to open and play, you might need to download a different player; one that will play a video file with the extension of MP4. A "FREE" video player that we can recommend for you is "VideoLan - VLC Video Player". This media player can be downloaded, FREE, from VideoLan's website by clicking this link.

Once you've downloaded, and installed, the VLC player, click on the picture below to begin the video.
