Bonus Deal | Beaufort County Now | SMSgt George Schryer (ret.) is a 24-year Air Force veteran. He served as a B-52 tail gunner (see insert on the masthead) in Vietnam. Tail gunners were trained to not only protect the plane from the rear from enemy fighters but to also assist other B-52's following in a formation that might have experienced difficulty with their radar in locating the target. The tail gunner in the forward plane would use his radar to locate the target and then signal to the following plane where to drop its bomb load. The technique was called "The Bonus Deal." George and his wife Gail have lived in Beaufort County for the last 17 years and since his 'second' retirement from Grady White Boats in 2006 after 12 years there. He is a life member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, currently serving as the Chief of Staff for the Commander of VFW District 2. George will be offering information for veterans and their families and commenting on issues he believes are important to all of us. He speaks for himself and not the Air Force, VFW, or anyone other than himself. We thank George for providing this "Bonus Deal" to the veterans and their families in our readership.
