My grandfather passed away this morning, at the age of 92... he was a strong, honest and caring man. He was a proud WW2 veteran, father and grandfather. He was responsible for manning the guns on the B-17 bomber and was shot down on his 11th mission over Nazi Germany (1-11-44). After landing in a police chiefs backyard, he was handcuffed, spit on, beaten up and dragged through town. He ended up in Stalag 17 until the camp was liberated May 2, 1945.
