"I Pray to God I Don't Dream..."

As a part of my book project about WWII "bomber jackets," I'm also photographing the veterans, if they are available.  A good friend and fellow photographer, Michael Schwarz, conducted an interview with my latest subject, Billy Lewis.  I won't spoil it for you, but I must mention that parts of the interview are still vividly recalled by Billy, and are quite intense.  Such is war...
