An innocent Christmas party led a World War II veteran’s daughter on a journey to discover the stories of the brave men who served in America’s notorious Flying Tigers.

Loren Falls has worked for almost two decades, dedicating herself to finding and documenting these men’s personal stories to better understand the father she lost. Collecting letters, interviews, donated pictures, and correspondence with the men and their families, Loren has realized the need to spread not only her father’s story, but the men of the Flying Tigers.
