The Schoolteacher Who Thought it was World War Eleven

The School Teacher Who Thought it was World War Eleven-Unproven!

Summary of eRumor:
This is a forwarded email about Theodore “Dutch” Van Kirk, the navigator of the Enola Gay and alleges that he was introduced to students by their teacher as a veteran of World War Eleven.

The Truth:
TruthOrFiction.com is investigating this and we have this as unproven at this time.

Major Van Kirk is 92 years old, the author of “My True Course” and still speaks about the famous flight of the Enola Gay.
We have inquiries into the people who book Major Van Kirk for speaking engagements and will post findings here when we get them.
