Ah. Since it was from Wiki, that explains the error. Thanks for taking the time to find it.
I am in contact with FighterPilot and wanted to let everyone know he is doing fine. He checks in now and then but time constraints are a bit tight. He sent me a couple of pictures to share. One of Clark Field circa 1939 and sketch of his P-61. Also a link to a utube; "Dogfights No Room For Error" of one of his friends.
I don't have a problem if you posting the photo on that website. I wish I could remember exactly where I got the Clark Field picture, but at this point I can't. The drawing made of my aircraft was done at one of the fly ins on the West Coast about 10 or 12 years ago.
I'm glad you're in touch with FighterPilot. He's a good guy.
This video is tremendous. I watched both parts. All I can say is "wow!"
Are you going to post the pictures? I can't wait to see them.
They're not there ? I was afraid they'd be too big. I see them now.
Strange. I don't see the pictures. Do you?
Yep, they are, I see them. Now what have I done?
Let me try it again.

That's a great video, Rog. I had seen it before, but it's still incredible the second time.
I'm sure I have seen that Clark Field picture somewhere online. Of course, I don't recall where. It is pre-War if I am not mistaken.
I can see the pictures now. Thanks a lot. There is a bunch to see.
One of the best things I've ever read about the Pacific Theater personalized accounts. Awesome. A great "come back to"
I want to meet this "Otto" guy. I think we're likely distant cousins. I know a lot of "Whittingtons"

Yep, Otto Otto Kleethe Whittington, Sr (1893 - 1965) - Find A Grave Memorial was distant cousins with this guy. PFC Jeston C. Whittington PFC Jeston C. (Clifford) Whittington (1922 - 1945) - Find A Grave Memorial
Otto K. Whittington Sr. was supposedly awarded the Silver Star in WWI but the silver star was enacted in after WW1, which doesn't make any sense.
Otto K. Whittington Jr. was the WWII Japanese witness with his cousins Otto W. Whttington and Jeston C. Whittington. Enoch was in Europe mopping up. And there were a few more cousins coming and going.
Or maybe another cousin haha. Otto K Whittington, Jr (1925 - 2012) - Find A Grave Photos

I think the Silver Star is a Whittington family tradition. SSGT Enoch A. Whittington
