    Over several years, I’ve considered Gene Autry my favorite Singing Cowboy! Remember, He served as a Pilot of fuel-transports, or B-24s.

    My dad Chuck Milligan from Baltimore, Md always spoke kindly of going thru flight training with Gene Autry. Would be interested in stories, pictures of that time.
