tell. They are portable memorials to
the men and women who died for
freedom and to the thousands who
persevered to share the tale."

Linda Williford contacted me
Sept. 17, 2007, regarding the
Harry Hopkins short snorter.
"I can identify one of the unknown
signatures on the Harry Hopkins
short snorter. D. Ray Comish was
my father, he was a Flight Engineer
for Pan American Airlines and was
part of the crew that flew Roosevelt
and his entourage to Casablanca
aboard the Dixie Clipper."
Gary Schulze, owner of the Harry
Hopkins short snorter, was
immediately notified. Gary wrote,
"This is absolutely amazing. It
shows the value and popularity
of your website. This is one name
I never would have been able to
identify without your help.
The really good news is that Linda
sent in scans of her father's short
snorters and other documentation...
