History of Aviator Storytelling:
Ever since World War I, pilots starting in the Army Air Corps, have assembled around the squadron bar, perfecting the art of storytelling. Each day, the beer light comes on signaling the last plane has landed. The aircrew assembled in the bar, usually located on the flight line, but any room will do. After the first beer or a shot of whiskey, the stories started flowing. These stories are passed on, but if they’re not written down, they disappear. Squadron Books is a movement to fix this problem and cement these stories as history
Dustin and Nick are military aviators who love a good story. Squadron Books began when they met an Author who had a story to share. The Top-5 publisher that wanted to sign her book about her grandfather, a B-24 pilot, wanted her to change her story. Dustin and Nick volunteered to take her book on to ensure it got published right. The Squadron Books’ mission is to make sure Airmen’s stories are told raw and uncut.
