Guy D. Allen Short Snorter
The Short Snorter Project
Guy D. Allen served his country in World War 2 as a Transport Pilot with the U. S. Navy. His daughter, Sandy Sawicki,
found the Short Snorter Project web site and wrote on October 20, 2009, "I LOVE your website.  My Dad was so proud of
his short snorter. I have attached a list of the signatures as best I could make out and the order his short snorter goes in
along with a picture of him.  Dad was in the Navy from 1942 until 1945 as a transport pilot. Luckily for me his mother
saved almost all the letters that he wrote home to them and I am doing a book using those letters.  It's for family only as
a treasured keepsake. I wrote up the dates of Dad's service and the planes that he flew and the places he went.  I also
attached a couple of pictures. I have a copy of the Daily Texan newspaper from April 27, 1943, showing parades and the
front page of the Paris newspaper from May 7 when they surrendered as well. Thanks for being as excited about this as
I am. My Dad said one time that he was upset because he did an overseas flight and found out he was carrying a load of
ping-pong balls.  Never really found out the whole story on that one! Sandy"
