I believe this crew flew the last mission of the Korean War. We took off early in the day on a ferreting mission along the coast of China. I as second radio man got a long coded message to be forwarded. We were flying in radio silence so I had to get the pilots permission to break the silence to forward it. He could tell it was important and told me to send it out and send my printed copy up to the cockpit. He must of had a code book on the flight deck because a few minutes later he came back with words that I will never forget......"IT'S OVER, IT'S OVER."..."
