Dallas Don Moody entered the service in mid-January of 1944. His family called him Don, but the government knew him as Dallas.
He served on a plane similar to this B-24 Liberator.
During his nine months in the service he wrote 250 letters to his family in Vinton and his mother saved every one.
The letters often contained code words--for instance he always signed his letters "Don", except when he went on a mission, then it was "Dallas."
After his death his letters were turned into a book called "An Aerial Gunner From Virginia."

(( Scott Allman knows what can result from a police chase.
He's been sentenced to 16 years in prison for fleeing from police last spring and causing an accident that killed three people.
"Even though I ran from them, I just want everyone to know that nothing is worth running from police because it will get people in more trouble than they were in. I'm so sorry and I want to help young kids not to go through what I did."
Another viewer wrote:
"If no one runs there is no chase. If the suspect, when approached by police, remains calm and is cooperative he will not, even if arrested, be dead at the end of a chase. We hire police to catch criminals. Sometimes they have to chase them but it is the suspect who initiates the chase. On the other hand if a person is influenced by drugs or alcohol he may not act rationally and it is in those situations that officers can use judgement to decide if a chase is warranted."
A Radford viewer says:
"I think that many people would agree that if police did not give chase, but simply relied upon road blocks or trying to identify the person involved by license tags...MANY more criminals would get away to repeat their crimes. The result of this would be more violence against innocent people. There are, of course, situations in which the police must break off their pursuit, and in this case they did the right thing."
