Hi, My name is Bailey Austin Yeager! My Great Grandfather was Admiral Howard A. Yeager, he served in the United States Navy during  World War 2 and Korea. He commanded the USS Nevada (BB-36). The Nevada, along with the USS Texas fired the first salvo on D-Day. Anyway, my family heritage has and been connected to Chuck Yeager's. I just wanted to say that the work the Wargaming community has done in developing an accurate gaming platform that has historical accuracy is amazing

Do you have any proof to support this? Evidence is everything here. Make sure you timestamp it. I don't buy it meng.

I don't know....but Bailey seems to be used a lot in their family names (using google). I tend to believe him, going public with such a claim would lead you open to accusations by others in the know.

I think he's the real deal....and if so...he would be interested in flying! I say welcome and carry on your heritage young sir! It's quite nice you embrace your heritage!

but, if you see pave in battle, he's just a harmless little furball, ignore him.

Thats not what he said.

"Chuck" Yeager certainly did not command the battleship Nevada on D-Day.

We have no reason not to believe you but as Heh stated more details would be awesome.

Welcome to WoWP Bailey.

Chuck wasn't a ship admiral nor even had his own ship. His duties were up there, battling it out with the enemy in the sky.

Howard Yeager and Charles Yeager are different men.
