Colorado's current oldest veteran is a Flying Tiger

I thought about combining subjects into one thread, but I decided that these two men deserved a dedicated thread.

Colorado Springs has long been a military town. Ollie Cellini may be the oldest veteran in the nation, and is apparently the last surviving Flying Tiger.

Cool.

Bumped.

The Flying Tigers are still remembered fondly in China: https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/21/asia/world-war-2-flying-tigers-intl-hnk-scli/index.html

Very cool. And apparently that pilot in Colorado is still with us, at age 107.
