This week we honor our Armed Forces and have a very special story to share with you on the Mary’s Touch program:

  • Edward C. Larson shares his military story and experience of Survivor’s Grief. In 1943, Edward went to war. He was sent to the far reaches of western China, to a place nestled in the shadows of the mighty Himalayas-the infamous Hump-to fly whatever aircraft he could coax into the skies. He was one of the youngest pilots in the China-Burma-India Theater.
  • Before his deployment to China, Larson served as a single-engine flight instructor for the USAAF, including training members of the Women Auxiliary Service Program (WASPs). With termination of the flight-training program, he was assigned to a B-24 training program and then transferred to the China-Burma-India Theater of War as a copilot/pilot of transport aircraft.
  • Edward is also the author of “Spear-Carrier in a Backwater War”, the story of manic devotion to airplanes and all things flying in a time when the world experienced vast and remarkable changes.
  • The cover and book design was created by one of our very own, Sheila Setter, who worked with Mary’s Touch for many year’s.
