“I’m Really Going to Miss These People”

Hollywood couldn’t create a better hero than the one Colonel William “Greg” Gregory is in real life. He flew P-38 fighter jets over North Africa and Europe and saw extensive combat during World War II. In the early 1960’s, he served as a squadron commander for the clandestine U-2 spy plane program. “The squadron I had, we found the first surface-to-air missiles in Cuba,” he recalls more than a half-century later. His team photographed the Soviet military sites, setting the stage for the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. Col. Gregory was later awarded a medal by the CIA and received a letter of appreciation from President John F. Kennedy. He also is a combat veteran of the Korean and Vietnam Wars.
