  • Ray Broady was my mothers uncle and even though I never knew him and was born decades after he died, I feel a link of some kind to him. He went off to England in the prime of his life to fight an enemy he never met by flying bombers. He died in a flying accident. He was only a few years older than my own two sons and I am grateful to him for offering the ultimate sacrifice so that we could remain as free people in a free land.
