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 C. Drinnon
In her book roundup feature for the Knoxville News Sentinel, Ina Hughs notes that Knoxville not only has a rich reading culture, it is also one of the cities prolific with writers, poets, essayists, and published authors. She features Tennesseans who recently published their books, including Xlibris author Kenneth C. Drinnon's World War II chronicle, Wings of Tru Love: A WWII B17 Ball-Turret Gunner Memoir. In his memoir, Kenneth chronicles his time as a ball-turret gunner for Tru Love, the B17 Flying Fortress he flew in with the 8th Air Force, 487th Heavy Bomb Group, and 838th Squadron from October 22, 1944 to February 28, 1945.
