Kenneth C. Drinnon
Eighty-nine-year-old World War II veteran Kenneth C. Drinnon is the personification of toughness and grit, having served as a gunner who fought tooth and nail in thirty aerial combat missions over Nazi Germany. He chronicled all these and more in his self-published book, Wings of Tru Love: A WWII Ball-Turret Gunner Memoir. However, the spotlight was shone on a different and more intimate part of Drinnon's life just recently as he lovingly spoke of his sixty-five-year love affair with wife, Janis, in a feature on WBIB.com

Kenneth Drinnon of South Knox County and a World War II veteran flew as a ball gunner in the belly of a Boeing B-17.He got to take a trip down memory lane as he toured one of the planes on display at McGhee Tyson Airport at Knoxair.Kenneth Drinnon remembers when, as a 19-year-old, he had to squeeze his 142-pound frame into the ball turret of a B-17 Flying Fortress aircraft for his first mission over Germany. The day was Oct. 22, 1944.Drinnon was a World War II "belly gunner" for the 487th bomb group of the 8th Air Force. "I saw many of them come in just like that," Drinnon said, his voice shaky, his eyes filling with tears. Watching the planes come in Tuesday flooded Drinnon with emotion.He also got the opportunity to go aboard the B-17, this time as a tourist. As he ran his hands across the galley of the craft, Drinnon reminisced about the time when he shot down two German warplanes. "When you do something as a young man, you think back on it," he said.
