2 Lieut Army Air Force Sam Milton Baker

Killed in a training accident World War II. My Father's brother and my uncle.

Memorial Day 2020

He was a flight instructor. He crashed at night with a student. He 23 years old. I read the autopsy report. It is brutal. Ugly ugly stuff.


I was named after Sam (and the other Sams who came before in my family). And all that probably from the books of the Old Testament. The Samuels. First and Second.
