Synopsis

Cecil Foster was born in Midland County, Michigan, on August 30, 1925. He endured economic and emotional hardship during his youth, living in a poor environment, losing his mother before he was six, and being separated from his brothers, sisters, and father. He joined the Army Air Force in 1943 as a private at the height of the World War II buildup and retired in 1975 as a lieutenant colonel. During his 32 years with the Air Force, Foster served in several different capacities - pilot, celestial navigator, radar-navigator-bombardier, intercept director, and squadron commander. A major focus of this work is Foster's Air Force career in the Korean War where he was one of the highest-scoring aces of the air war. His record of nine MiGs destroyed places him 12 on a list of 38 aces. Every one of the aircraft he destroyed was shot down in the area known as "MiG Alley," a smali section of airspace along the Yalu River, which separated North Korea from China.

Cecil G. Foster has been awarded over twenty decorations, including two Silver Stars. He divides his time between Henderson, Nevada and Missoula, Montana. David K. Vaughan lives in Texas and is the author of several books.
