Abstract:
Most of the state's military historians recognize the name of Major George Preddy of Greensboro, who was one of the top fighter pilot aces in the European Theater during World War II. Greensboro has another airman, not so well-known, but noteworthy nevertheless. Edwin Vance Bain Jr., was one of Doolittle's Raiders that bombed Japan in 1942. He flew in India, Burma, and other areas. He was killed in 1943 on a return from a bombing mission to Rome. Among his awards were the Distinguished Flying Cross, Soldier's Medal, and the Military Order of China.
