Multumesc pentru publicarea pe site a completarii facute.

Andrei Teodor Carac  (7 April 2008)
Sunt nepotul direct al eroului Dem Ben Carac.
Dem Ben Carac a obtinut brevetul de pilot nr.1479; prin procesul verbal nr.12 din 11 august 1938.
Tatal lui Dem Ben Carac care este bunicul meu, Teodor Carac a fost ofiter de cariera, absolvent al primei promotii de ofiteri a  Scolii Superioare de Razboi (promotia I 1921).
Ceea ce este mai putin cunoscut despre Dem Ben se refera la faptul ca a fost instructor de zbor pe diferite tipuri de avioane.
Din scolarizarea lui au iesit o serie intreaga de piloti de razboi. Si mai putin cunoscut este faptul ca a fost un poet innascut (vol. "La poarta sufletului meu"), a scris piese de teatru ( Varvara-Mister Religios intre acte), epigramist ( vol. Epigrame) si compozitor.
Pe langa toate acestea Dem Ben Carac a fost campion national la calrie obstacole-1936, cu cei doi cai ai sai Saghia a-7-a si Ali 11.
