My father, Eugene Walker 'Chug' Penick was a farm boy out of
Chugwater, Wyoming so his buddies dubbed him 'Chug'. He was
also a WW II hero: a right waist gunner in a B-17, he was shot down
during the Hamburg Raid and spent 27 months as a POW in Austria. He
died in 1982 in a traffic accident, taken before his time.
