As most know Mr. Taylor grew up in Hominy and, with another young Navy pilot, shot down several Japanese Zero’s over the vicious attack on Pearl Harbor. While he was technical director of Tora, Tora, Tora, he was also portrayed briefly by a young actor. He retired Brigadier General of the Alaska Air National Guard.
