The Preddy Memorial Foundation is trying to have an air base named in honor of the Preddy brothers who gave their lives while flying combat in the P-51 Mustang during WW II. George is the world's top Mustang ace with 26 2/3 aerial victories to his official credit. He is NC's top ace, the sixth ranking Air Force ace, and the seventh highest American ace.
Congressman Howard Coble has recorded a short speech on the PMF web site (www.preddy-foundation.org) asking for your support. You may sign the online petition on that site. And you may read about George & Bill Preddy, Greensboro natives. All Tarheels should take pride in their accomplishments but especially in George's records.
Feel free to write me with questions and/or comments.
