Frank Arthur Kaye, 90 of Savannah, Ga. died April 4, 2014 at his residence. He was born in Brooklyn, New York. His education interrupted by the War, he joined the U.S. Army Air Force, where he served as a flight engineer and top turret gunner aboard a B-24 Liberator bomber with the 8th Air Force in Europe. He flew 33 operational combat missions over the flak filled skies of Germany with loyality, intergrity, attitude, reliability, aptitude, accuracy and proficiency at all times rated excellent and above. He displayed in actual combat his ability and endurance as an airman in an excellent and efficient manner for which he earned the Air Medal with four additional clusters, the European theater of operation campaign ribbon with four battle stars including the Battle of the Bulge, and the NY State Conspicuous Service Cross, among his decorations.
Returning home to what he describes as a proud, grateful, loyal and patriotic Nation, only to detect a beginning of deteriation of this proud attitude shortly after the Korean War and a further breakdown of loyalty and patriotism to our country during the VietNam War. This prompted him to author two books on the subject. "What in Hell is Going On" and "Red Gray and Blue."
He was a life time member of the Disabled American Veterans Post #8, The American Legion Post #135, The Eighth Air Force Historical Society and a member of Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge.
He is survived by his wife of 70 years, Coletta, his three children,Francine (Floyd)y, Larry (Laura) and Christopher (Susie). He also left multiple grandchildren and great-grandchildren to cherish his memory.
No service is planned right now at his request. A Memorial Service may be scheduled in the near future.
