"Jack has been in my thoughts everyday. I was lucky to have spent a large part of my life with him and I sorely miss him." -- Brian D. Brown, Kennesaw, Georgia
"Jack is one of the most incredible people I have ever had the pleasure to know. He is a rare breed of a man who is genuine, honest, and to the point. The world would be a better place if more were like him. This is a very worthwhile project you have undertaken. Jack is more than worthy." -- Danny Hanie, Longmont, Colorado.
"Kudos for taking on a project that many of us have discussed but until you, nobody actually did anything about." -- Donald Hinds, Alpharetta, Georgia
"I spent some time yesterday looking over your website, but have only had time to watch one of the videos. Planning to set aside some time to watch the rest soon. It is good to see and hear Jack again, we had been wondering how he was getting along. He is still missed by those of us down here in Georgia. Don’t know if it has ever come up, but Jack guided me through the purchase of my first airplane, a 1948 A-model Navion, which I still own and fly. Jack and I and our friend Terry McBride, picked it up in Vancouver, WA, and flew it back to Georgia. Jack entertained us with stories from coast to coast. A fantastic trip I still look back on it and wish I could do it again." Don Hinds Alpharetta, GA
"Thanks, Roy, for the link and especially for the effort. Jack merits this and more." -- Ken Olsson, Museum Coordinator, www.waaamuseum.org
"This great! Thank you for including me in your notice! Jack taught me to Fly in 1949. As my log book (of course I have it) shows, my first flight with Jack was on January 16, 1949! We flew for an entire half hour at Parkaire! It is now a shopping center. We flew in Aeronca 7AC N83845. Please keep me posted on any plans you have to HONOR Jack! WHAT A GUY!" -- Wallace Hudson. Marietta, Georgia
"Awesome job Roy! Thank you for sharing this with me. Jack has been my hero since i first met him. Kind of another other dad!" -- Phil Moss, The Dalles, Oregon
"Wow Roy! This is amazing! Well done my friend. I am so honored to know Jack, and You! Happy New Year!" -- Jeremy Young (first Director of WAAAM), Hood River, Oregon
"This is so awesome! I’ve been waiting on this with much anticipation. I can’t wait to see all that you have accomplished. Thank you for doing this for my good friend and mentor." -- Danny Hanie, Longmont, Colorado
"I have been, since the beginning of my knowledge of what you set out to accomplish, grateful and overjoyed with the project. A life important to be acknowledged and remembered. Happy to be right here, knowing it was happening, observing little parts of the process. Delighted to feel that you felt he is as magnificent as I have always known he is. So many times, as I sit in the afternoons with Mom and Dad, I think I should have a mini recorder in my pocket. The stories and memories are so dearly important to hear. Thank you for the gift you haven given to us. Thank you for your time. I will cherish these stories and insights always." -- Anne Dunn-Mack (Jack's daughter), Hood River, Oregon
"The experiences and moment in history of people like Jack will never occur again. It is so important to have this history documented for the future. Jack was one of the "greatest generation" that we are all so indebted to. Add to this the hundreds of people he has taught and mentored, and the contributions he has made to aviation history, makes for this web site to be an extremely worthy project. Thanks go to Jack, Roy, and others who contributed, for their time and effort in making these stories available to the public, and for generations to come.' -- Matt Stewart, The Dalles, Oregon
"Wow! What an amazing slice of history you have compiled. I enjoy military and aviation history, so this is right up my alley. And you are doing a phenomenal job of capturing and presenting his story. Ken Burns would be impressed! Thanks for sharing this!" -- Doug Orr, Extra 300 owner/pilot, Hood River, OR
"You've done a tremendous job collecting Mr. Dunn's experiences. And although I realize the website isn't complete, it looks pretty good. Aside from being a treasure for friends and family, the videos will be useful to future historians. Although I only looked at a couple of short segments, his voice is strong, as is his mind--which is much appreciated by interviewers. My writing projects stretch out at least three years from now, but perhaps someone will decide to write his story someday. It doesn't hurt that he's got a dedicated advocate, in you!" -- Jay Stout, http://www.jayastout.com, author of over nine books about aviation history, including "The First Hellcat Ace" and "To Be A U.S. Naval Aviator".
"Jack taught me how to land R/C planes 22 years ago at the Paulding field. He had me fly the pattern over the strip about 3 mistakes high. Then do it again and again only lower and lower. Worked like a champ. Thanks Jack!" -- Mike Greenlaw
"I started watching Jack's interviews and just couldn't stop. It would be a real editing job to put those to paper. Good job." -- Gary Fuller, Carson City, NV
"An amazing bio and a life very well lived -- the best way you can live it......in the air. Looking forward to making my way through the rest of the videos. You have done a fantastic job of documenting Jack's life Roy." -- The Bump , The Aviation Forum
