I had a friend who went to Lane Tech, a highly regarded high school/secondary school. He was in one of the last few graduating classes as an all male school before it went co-ed. He completed the ROTC program there and was offered a West Point scholarship. He ended up going elsewhere though.

Let you known that I did contact Mr. Ted Szalinski on Februari 15th 2016, and not the opposite way
Mr. Tom Kane who picked up this story mid 2016, did contact me January 5th 2017.
With the latest info - as for today - "Wacky Woody" was B-17G 42-39841
and Mr. Szalinski's B-17G 42-39856 ( see photo) has no name and nose art.
