Neither did I until I saw, on Amazon Prime, a documentary about American pilots who served in the 1948 war called "Above and Beyond." If you have Amazon Prime I highly recommend it.

Here's his obit, which explains it all.

Thanks, Captain Rawl,

A most interesting story. A trip back to that period of the past is a constant reminder that (for some of us) Everything since WWII has been a gift.....(and to have flown for TWA, the icing on the cake.)
