    I'm happy to report that Ralph Burbridge, bombardier of the 'All American', just celebrated his 90th birthday in Mesa, AZ.

    The story of the 'All American' has been well documented and our family is appreciative of the efforts to forever document these marvelous stories of courage and sacrifice.

    I would be very grateful if anyone has additional information, pictures, documents, etc. that can be shared to add to our history of Ralph and his plane. Please contact me direct at sam at silveyfamily.org
