Our connection to Mac and the 325th Fighter Group:  My wife of over 50 years, Sue, is Mac's daughter. Sue is
such a big part of this website.  She scanned all the pictures and proof reads everything, it helps to be married to
an English Major. We  made this website not just as a tribute to Mac and all of the McDaniel family, but also for all
the brave men and women that gave so much almost 80 years ago. They changed the world.  My name is Frank
