Glenn Henry Webster, 92, of Greeley, Colo., passed away July 18, 2010.

He was born November 29, 1917 to Henry and Anna (Franz) Webster in Ft. Collins, Colo. He grew up on the family homestead south of Harmony Road, where he attended grade school. After graduating from Timnath High School, he farmed with his Dad and brother Harry.

In October 26, 1940, he enlisted in the Army Air Corps, going to Kelly Field, Texas, for basic training. His outfit later moved to Jefferson Barracks, Mo., where they lived in tents in sub-zero weather. They were glad to move up to Selfridge Field, Mich., where the 8th Air Force Command was formed.

After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Army life changed quickly and completely. It was down to North and South Carolina for war maneuvers that lasted several months. The training consisted of two units, the Reds and the Blues against each other.

The new 8th Air Force shipped out for England arriving in Glasgow, Scotland, June 11, 1942. After going through aircraft gunnery school he was assigned to a B17 air base as a waist gunner. He was wounded, and later assigned to the 8th Air Force Headquarters Command base in England.

During his three year tour of duty in England, he served in the Battle and Campaign of Air Offensive Europe, in Normandy, and in Northern France. He received the European African Middle East Service Medal, the Distinguished Unit Citation, the Air Medal, the Victory Medal, and even the Good Conduct Medal.
