4. Dad passed away six years ago, age 92.
We knew he'd served as a DI in the Army Air Corps, but did not see combat because of his athsma. We were amazed when he casually mentioned, just two years before his death, that he'd been part of the team that developed the Norden bomb sight. We asked why he'd never said anything before and he replied that it was classified. He said that as far as he knew it hadn't been de-classified, but "By now, who cares?"

Silent as clams, those guys.
