During WW II, Chuck Utz (pronounced “youtz) served as a tailgunner aboard B-17 bombers, first ferrying aircraft from the US to Europe, and then into combat throughout the continent.

His ship was hit and destroyed over Germany On Christmas Eve, 1944.  After bailing out, the Germans took him as a prisoner of war until January 1946.
