Joseph and Georgianna Fullem, outside the family candy store at 4 Coles Street in Jersey City, New Jersey, during the spring of 1943. The store was the scene of much neighborhood excitement when an AP photo appeared in the press amid news of the crew’s ditching and rescue from the English Channel on September 6, 1943. This photo was taken while Pete was on leave before traveling to Boise, Idaho, to join Hullar’s crew in May 1943. Mr. Fullem died suddenly that July and Pete’s emergency leave with the family almost caused him to miss the crew’s deployment overseas.

Marson were equally generous with their memories, photographs, and the personal records of their late husbands, as were Dale Rice’s brother, The Rev. Charles Rice, and Charles “Pete” Fullem’s recently deceased brother, Joseph. The latter sent me a package I will never forget—a small, string-wrapped envelope that contained the entire written remains of Pete Fullem’s life, from his birth certificate to the record of his death. I am most grateful to a number of B-17 veterans whose contributions went far beyond their accounts of the missions Hullar’s crew flew.
