Buslee crew navigator Chester Rybarczyk in his flight jacket - Rybarczyk’s flight jacket shows a picture of a bomb for each of his missions except for his 15th mission. That mission is depicted as a boot, signifying a mission from which the boys had to walk back after a crash landing. He also had the back of his jacket inscribed “Korky,” his nickname for his sweetheart (and future wife) back home, Bernadette Korlewski.

Photo provided by Tony Rybarczyk, Chester's son. Photo contributed by Cindy Farrar Bryan, daughter of George Edwin Farrar, 2014.
