We're at the Chopping Block in the Kitchen

When you're in the service, everyone gets a chance to visit the kitchen.  These guys are at the chopping block.  I spent my time peeling potatoes, 2000 lbs a night.  Then the cooks took off earlier than they were supposed to and my friend and I had to slice and cook the potatoes.  I was just out of boot camp and only eighteen years old and didn't know how to cook 2000 lbs of potatoes, so the troops got, basically warm, raw, potatoes.  This was in 1972 so I really don't know how these guys did it, but I can see that they too did spend time in the kitchen.  C.

Willow Run

The exciting story of  building the B-24 Liberator
Warren Benjamin Kidder (Ben) was the last man to live on the Willow Run property before his house was torn down for the factory construction.  He has done a tremendous amount of research on building the Willow Run Plant and the B-24 Liberator.  The book is one of the best that I have ever read and you can see a large exhibit here with lots of great photos of the B-24 Liberator under construction plant in World War 2.  Exhibit Added Feb 2000
