    My sympathy is extended to the family and friends of Bill Slaughter.I first met Bill at Owens Field Airport in Columbia,S.C.,where he was employed. He was never too busy to speak with people especially those of us who wanted to talk about his service to our country while flying with the Flying Tigers. So it was only fitting that a scene with the Flying Tigers was painted on the back wall of a hanger at Owens Field.It was a reminder to him and all of us how important the Flying Tigers were in combating the aggression thrust upon China and the Allies by the Imperial Empire of Japan in World War l1.Bill was a hero to us and we all loved him for whom he was and his service to Freedom’s Call.I remember him wearing his Flying Tiger Jacket during events at Owens Field. He could still get into it after all these years.He looked so handsome in it. It was very strange to me that I was placing some photos of Bill and me in a aviation picture album of famous aviation events and aviation figures that I had the honor of meeting over the years.This happened just before learning of Bill’s death. May his family and friends be blassed.May we never forget Bill and the service he gave to a grateful nation,
    Earl Eargle,West Columbia,S.C.

    Have read the recent obituary of your loved one, William Whitson Slaughter, a fellow Flying Tiger whose commanding officer was General Chennault. We commend your loved one for his outstanding service to mankind. The family has our deepest sympathy.
