“An Extraordinary Ordinary Man”

Today the Library welcomed Yvonne Caputo, daughter of Michael Caputo, a veteran of the 467th Bomb Group at Rackheath. If you’ve visited our Library already, you have perhaps seen and admired Mr. Caputo’s cherished gift to the Memorial Library: his impressive model of the B-24 Liberator, “Witchcraft”, which hangs from our ceiling.

Yvonne traveled here from Philadelphia with her husband Kirk to present the Library with her nearly-completed book, An Extraordinary Ordinary Man, which details her father’s childhood, service at home and overseas in the Army Air Force, and active life after the War.

We were so pleased to get to know Yvonne–and her father–better.
