Football Flyboy

About Football Flyboy: Buster, a small-town football hero, turns pilot during WW II, with an ego to match both titles. His attitude grows as gets outside his comfort zone piloting C-47 troop and cargo carriers from Labrador, Greenland, Iceland, France, Cairo, China, Japan, and the Philippines. His letters are a one-way communication showing his journey. His mail could never catch up with him about which he firmly stated, “pissed me off.” This left him only able to write what was on his mind every day with no news from home.

As he grows into manhood, Buster reaches a turning point that changes his views on humanity. His camera documents the devastation he witnesses, devastation that humbles his spirit. Through his letters home, we learn about the family dynamics that make him into a man of honor and compassion. Lonely for home, he remains true to his high school sweetheart who he married prior to leaving on his tour of duty.
