"USS Corsica" Book by Dominique Taddei. . . (Barbi Ennis Connolly)

_     Author, Historian, Historical Researcher. . . Friend, (ultimate) Host and with the Memories that began when the "AMERICANS" arrived.  1944.  .... from when Dominique was barely 8 to 10 years old until the 'sleeping giant' awoke when he retired.  He REMEMBERED._

_   Now he remembers all, he welcomes all, gracious to a fault and a humble and intelligent man.   Dominique took it upon himself to search.... for the Men, the Ships, the Missions.  Then he joined, asked, invited and welcomed until I know of no one who knows this great man that does not call him FRIEND.  His book, the USS Corsica is a testament to the greatness he witnessed as the humane and kind Americans arrived on to a devastated Island  ..... some remained friends for a million years, the years between 'knowing the Men of the 57th' and 'finding them'.  Dominique is as much a 57th Bomb Wing Airman as if he actually loaded the big Bombs himself._

_     He also did extensive research on the Fighter Groups that escorted the Medium B-25 Mitchell Bombers, and B-26 Marauders.  He found our pilots, our air crew and the cooks, he asked for memories and listened to more than a few tales through misty eyes._
