Tony Bilek turned his job of working on planes into a hobby. For many years, he built one model with several other veterans in the area. Now it sits in the Chaute Air Museum. But, that's not all.
He's even written a book discussing how he survived one of the most violent battles during World War II. He was captured by the Japanese and spent three-and-a-half years in a prison camp, forced to work in coal mines. Bilek's book is called No Uncle Sam: The Forgotten of Bataan. He wrote it in 2003. It's available on Amazon.com.
