A WPR Series: Richard Bong -- America's Ace of Aces
Wisconsin-native Major Richard Bong shot down more enemy aircraft than any other American pilot during World War II. In fact, his record of 40 kills has never been equaled by an American pilot in combat. WPR's Mike Simonson has produced a four-part series on America's "Ace of Aces." We'll post a new segment each morning through Thursday.
