Welcome back to the hobby! The date that your dad piloted the Higgins boat, would that have been June 6th? If it was on the 6th that could have only been one operation.
Keep us posted on the build progress!

Yes, June 6 1944. It was the only thing he told us about his experiences in the war. Everything else is a mystery.

Most of the "greatest generation" are very quiet when it comes to that part of their lives. 8 years ago I lost a very good pilot friend that I had the privilege to fly full scale airplanes with for many years. On the morning of June 6, 1944 he was flying a Waco troop glider into France and he never talked about that either.
Anyways, welcome back to the hobby and have fun!!
