Follow-up Response to Photo of Raymond Benedict

My father died about the time you found his photograph, kinda strange the way things happen old lucky making it through the war with a couple of close calls only to come home and die of an industrial disease.
My father would have been about twenty three or four when the photo was taken making him one of the oldest people in his air crew. If you see a lot of photos from the Pacific war every one looks like they have a great tan, it really is the medicine they are taking to fight topical diseases staining their skin a yellowish brown.
Thank you again for the photo
