Military

Object Number - UPL 41604 - B-17 42-31545 'Bad Time Inc' after its forced landing. L-R: Pat Fusci, Unk, Bryant, Elduff, Meeuwsen, Clausen

Plane was called 'Bad Time Inc.' Commanding Officer told us to name it 'Bad Time' as we seemed to irritate him at times. I came up with the 'Inc' part after a mob in Brooklyn - 'Murder Inc', the crew said "great", so 'Bad Time Inc' was our plane's name.

Awards: DFC, AM (3OLC), WWII Victory, EAME(2 battle stars), Unit Citation.
