Sam Nudelman's son, H. Alan Nudelman indicates that "I have recently found my fathers service records. He piloted B17's. I have lists of crew members of his and of other B-17's of the 25th Bomb Group. They were general orders for awards like the DFC with clusters and stars and promotions. I also have some limited documents of my Uncle who was also a crew member on B-17's of the 493rdd bomb group 863rd sqd. 3rd Air Div. He was a POW and just recently passed away. I feel history need to be preserved."
