We were thrilled to have a visit from Thomas Stieglitz, WWII veteran of Operation Torch and the American campaign in Italy. Tom served as a crew chief on Spitfires as well as Mustangs.

At 96 years young, Tom has a great memory of his wartime experiences all those years ago and was kind enough to spend a few minutes of his time at the museum in an unscripted interview.


It was a privilege and a pleasure to meet Tom and we look forward to seeing him with us again.
