Lasting Legacy: WWII stories from my father Wilbur ‘Bud’ Klint – Part 1
FORT WORTH, TX, UNITED STATES
06.14.2021

In this 3-part video series, 301st Fighter Wing Honorary Command Chief Rob Klint shares stories from his father, WWII B-17 Bomber Pilot ‘Bud’ Klint. Currently, Rob serves as the wing’s first-ever honorary command chief for the 2020 – 2022 term.

Yet for the 2018 – 2020 term of the 301st Fighter Wing Honorary Commanders Program, Klint was originally invited to serve as the 355th Fighter Squadron honorary commander, the wing’s active-associate unit. Klint explains how research led him to discover that the 355 FS flew 13 fighter escort missions for his father’s B-17 in the European WWII Campaign. Klint also shares several of Bud’s miraculous missions and how children of WWII enemies have ultimately become good friends.

In part one, Klint introduces himself, how he got involved with the 301st Fighter Wing and how he, through his father, is linked to the 355th Fighter Squadron.
