Another WWII Ace Goes West 

Spotted this on Hyperscale's "Plane Talking" message forum today:

Lt. Col. J.M. "Willie" Williams passed away May 10, 2004, in Austin, Texas, at the age of 86. Col. Williams scored six confirmed kills serving with 76th Fighter Squadron/23rd Fighter Group in China during 1943. Before he retired from the Air Force in 1969, Col. Williams was a military advisor to the Vietnam Air Force, during which time he flew combat missions in A-1H Skyraiders. Described as a modest man with a great sense of humor, he was one of the good guys.
