"The last surviving member..." ??????

https://www.stripes.com/news/us/wwii-bombardier-dies-in-veterans-home-aged-96-1.563959


" Sherman spent 13 months in China as a bombardier and navigator with the 11th Bomb Squadron of the Army's 14th Air Force, commanded by Maj. Gen. Claire Chennault, said Nell Calloway, Chennault's granddaughter and head of the Chennault Aviation and Military Museum in Monroe.

The 14th Air Force was nicknamed the Flying Tigers after the famed volunteer fighter group that, as a civilian adviser to nationalist China, Chennault had created to defend that country before the U.S. entered the war.

In a telephone interview, Calloway said only one volunteer Flying Tiger, Frank Losonsky, and a few members of the 14th Air Force are still alive.

There was definitely something "special" about that article, what with the utterly incomprehensible statement of "He was shot down only once on February 13, 1944, when the Japanese posed as a Chinese fishing boat."
Then again, judging by the URL and content of the website, it's centered around the Arkansas/Mississippi/Louisiana area, which is a "special" part of the country in and of itself from what I've heard...
