My brother, as you may remember him as Jake on the forum, has been un-able to get to this site. So he told me to ask you this. He is 13, and his Bar Mitzva is right around the corner. As you all may know, the USPostal service has deleted all its old stamps when they changed to 33 cents a peice. They only have little girlie 55 cents, which the invitations weigh, so he went to the only 60 cents, an aviation stamp, PERFECT! Because thats his favorite this, planes, just like me. But on the top it says "Eddie Rickenbacker, Aviation Pioneer", who is he? What did he do to become a pioneer? Thank-you in advance. Answers are appreciated at LAbsolute7@aol.com or on the forum. Adios.
