Veyna’s Mural in Tulare—Richard “Dick” Bong and more
Thanks to Nick Veronico—author of many books—we have the awareness of Colleen Veyna’s mural tribute to the Rankin Aeronautical Academy and its star pupil, Ira Bong. The effort to train pilots during World War II was huge and fostered 62 contracted flying schools with Rankin Aeronautical Academy training 1.4 million students in primary flight training. Our thanks to Nick for this find in Tulare CA! Place his name in the search box to see reviews of his recent books—all thoroughly enjoyable.
