Bibb Allen spoke to Team 6-3 students at Simmons Middle School

As reported in the Hoover City Schools newspaper, “Bibb Allen spoke to Team 6-3 students at Simmons Middle School. He served in the United States Air Force as a fighter pilot during World War II. Allen shared many interesting stories about his missions as a fighter pilot crossing the English Channel to drop bombs on the Germans in occupied France. His stories kept the children on the edge of their seats with his vivid portrayal of life as a fighter pilot. He said the real heroes were the foot soldiers who had to fight on the land knowing the enemy was nearby. We believe Mr. Allen and all the fighter pilots were also great heroes, and we were so fortunate to hear from one of them.”
