Hi Jessie,

I've always been told by my family that Paul W, my sixth uncle flew on the Enola Gay and was responsible for pushing the button that led to the H-bomb's destruction of Heroshima, Direct orders from Harry S. Truman. Our last name was later changed to Tibbet from Tibbets for reasons I'm still not aware of. Hope this helps!
