Nona Bridges, “George Bernard Pruett, son of Grace Bridges Pruett, (my aunt and your Grandma Mundy’s 1st cousin) was a pilot in the Marine Corps during WW II. He was was killed at Camp Lejeune when his plane stalled out during one of his last training missions. Bernard was known as “Ab” and was my favorite older cousin. He had attended Purdue University on a scholarship, and joined after graduation. He stayed with the stalled plane to make sure his crew had a chance to jump, and went down with it. He is buried in Vincennes, Indiana where he lived with his parents, Wayne and Grace Bridges Pruett. He was named for his uncle, George Bernard Bridges, who died in WW I.”
