Bill Cook In Uniform
This is my maternal grandfather (and namesake), William Cook. He died when I was quite young, but as I recall, he was really into Sesame Street, The Incredible Hulk, and Pac Man. Or, maybe that's what I was into. Who can remember?
Actually, I should probably tell you some serious things about him. He flew during World War II, then later spent most of his career flying for Delta airlines. He was a member of the Quiet Birdmen, which-- near as I can tell-- is some kind of all-male social club for pilots. He was married to Eleanor (Stevens) Cook, and they had four kids-- my Uncles Billy, Brad, and Michael and my mom, Mom.
