Autograph Letter signed: "Tom Ferebee, 1 page, 5x7¼. No place, 1999 March 12. To "Dear Jerry", in full: "I cut off one & decided it would not work, so I will change my bank account # and mailing the checks on to you. Sincerely [signature] "I do not have anything with the 509 on it, so I will write something on other paper. Thomas Wilson Ferebee (1918-2000) was the bombardier on board the Enola Gay and was responsible for dropping the first atomic bomb, "Little Boy", on Hiroshima, Japan. Ferebee initially trained for a position on the Boston Red Sox, but joined the Army when he didn't make the team. A knee injury put him into flight school instead of Army training. He remained in the Air Force until the 1970s, serving in Korea and retiring as a colonel. He worked as a real estate agent after retirement. The Enola Gay was one of the specially modified B-29 bombers of the 509th Composite Group, the world's first nuclear-capable bombardment unit. Vertical fold. Fine condition.
