Nightfighter’s son shares father’s legacy

Growing up in the 1950s, Mark Macgruder realized vaguely that his father had done something pretty big in World War II, but he didn't know how big until many years later. "When you're a kid, you have no idea that you have a hero as a father," Macgruder said last week. "I just knew him as Dad. I never realized the full scope of what he accomplished until I started on the book."
