My dad served in the 533rd and I have a small suitcase of pictures some of the famous B17's and pictures of Gerge Robinson and others that visited I want to get with someone and donate these to the Smithsonian in Washington. How do I start on this venture. I myself served in Vietnam with VF114 de[ployed on the USS Kitty Hawk 68 & 69. I have lots of slides taken of planes taking off and landing at nifgt. They are supper but I don't know how to get them in a format for distribution. I also belong to "together we serveded" and still am iun touch with some frinds. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you. Bill Piech, Raleigh, NC
