BRAVERY, STRENGTH, AND GRIT . . .

Sons of the 43rd tells the story of two men who left their small-town America to travel around the world and fight an enemy they had never met. One man survived World War II and the other disappeared, his fate unknown until a chance discovery fifty years later.

Delmar Dotson of Pound, Virginia, lost his father and grew up in an orphanage. The disappearance of his plane in the jungles of New Guinea has haunted his family for decades. Gray Allison of Ida, Louisiana, also lost his father but later in life. Both men found a home in the 43rd Bombardment Group fighting the Japanese, first in New Guinea and finally, for Allison, at the doorstep of Japan. He has spent decades investing in the lives of young people.
