Man talking

Penn State alumnus Alexander “Lew” Parry Jr. served as a navigator in a B-29, flying 31 missions. Parry has permanent hearing loss, the result of his military training on shooting ranges, which would cause his helmet to rise off of his head from the intense compression blast of each bullet fired.
