Edward C Ennis and his best friend "Brownie" KIA 2 Dec,'42 Mission, Bridge over Chieti.
Ed and Brownie met within a week of joining the AAC, went to Scott Field Radio School, Ed's wife Alta came there for weekends and they, including other friends, Jack and Helen Best of PA....., would share meals and games and good times.
Both ended up in the Gen. Bob Knapp's 321st Bomb Group and flew many Missions "together" but in seperate ships, as they both did Radio and Aerial Gunnery.
With their other best friend, Walter Cantrell, they could be seen off doing things together in their off-combat time. Walter Cantrell lives just 9 miles from daughter Barbi and has shared many stories with our family. "Brownie" was thier true and faithful friend. God Bless our brave men.
Barbi Ennis Connolly, daughter.
