Description

A colorized portrait photograph of Second Lieutenant Jack Julian Little. Jack Little served on the B-17 Arkie-II, serial number 42-29553, as a bombardier. The bombardier’s main purpose was to aim and release bombs on designated targets and ensure that the plane remained steady throughout the bombing run.

The Florida-France Soldiers Stories Project seeks to tell the stories of the Florida soldiers buried in the American Battle Monuments Commission cemeteries in France. Our goal is to honor and commemorate the brave individuals who gave their lives supporting the Allied forces, liberating France, and defeating Germany in the Second World War. Simultaneously, our goal is to teach the students who participate in this research project about the history of France and Florida during World War II, about the history of individual servicemen, and about how to implement historical research methods in their work.
