Kenneth Leudke video interview on experiences in World War II (transcript)
Creator: Luedke, Kenneth
Date: November 5, 2007
Kenneth Luedke was inducted into the Army (Air Force) in 1942 and served until 1945 in the 440th Bomb Group, 20th Air Force - Around the World Unit. He received pilot training at Becker's Field, California. He ultimately flew a B-29 in the Pacific. He was born November 19, 1921, in Missouri. He graduated from Colony High School in Kansas. The transcript says 1949 but it was probably 1939. There seems to be some confusion about dates throughout the transcript. He used the GI Bill of Rights to attend Allen County Community College and Kansas University. He was a teacher and principal. He was interviewed by Suzette McCord-Rogers on Nov 5, 2007. The 2005 Kansas Legislature passed a bill funding the WWII Veterans Oral History grant program. This transcript is from one of the community institutions receiving grants. The transcript of the interview is presented here; the original video copy of the interview is available through the Doniphan County Historical Society (Troy) and through the Kansas State Historical Society.
