Hello! I am wondering if you could add pictures of the pages in this book to the website. I am interested in looking through this notebook for some firsthand information about WWII bombing missions for an Air Force writing contest. If this is not possible, am I able to schedule a time to come into the museum and search through some artifacts? Thank you so much for your help! – Emily
