Remembering Mr. J. B. Caldwell
Remembering a Flying Tiger's Hero

The Flying Tigers are remembered today for their contribution to both U.S. and Chinese war efforts in the Pacific during World War II. There are museums and displays throughout the United States dedicated to them as well as in China.
We, Chinese, appreciate that the United States stood up to help and send the Flying Tigers to work with the Chinese people to defend our country.
we appreciate our hero Mr. J. B. Caldwell ! Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure
You are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure.....

My uncle, Whom I loved very much. It's sad to see the family you grew up with all pass away, but the bright side of this story is we'll be together in Heaven one day. It was fun having you as my uncle when I was a boy, but meant even more to me as we grew to be friends. Tell the family "hi" for me and enjoy The Reunion!

Though he was my mom's uncle, I always called him Uncle JB. I have such fond memories and will always remember the funny stories he told.

“Uncle” J.B. has been a part of my life since I was around 4 or 5 years old. He was a true mensch: Yiddish for an upright, honorable man who is someone to admire and emulate. He will always live on in my heart.
