Paul Ewert

Paul Winfred Ewert was born in Pierre, South Dakota on January 16, 1924. When Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was attacked by Japan, Paul enlisted in the Air Force, then the U.S. Army Air Corp. He was an instructor for the LINK flight simulators and helped train pilots to fly planes for combat missions.
Even though Paul’s training was in engineering, the Korean War had begun, and the Air Force needed pilots. Paul flew over 30 combat missions over North Korea with the 19th Bomb Wing, 28th Bomb Squadron. During his 28 years in the military, Paul also worked as an airplane mechanic, and flight engineer on B-29’s, B-36’s, and B-26’s.

What an accomplishment to fly 30 combat missions! Having learned about "Mig" Alley, I have begun to understand the crucial role of the pilot in war. I am thankful for his service and dedication to our country.

The Soviets, who could have vetoed the resolution, are boycotting the proceedings because the Nationalist government on Taiwan still occupies China’s seat on the Security Council. Seoul falls the following day.
