(a rememberance)

 

  These young pilots, just a few of the 412th Squadron, were responsible for 55 enemy aircraft destroyed or damaged, in addition to tanks, rails and convoys. Allied ground forces loved them and by their efforts and other brave men like them, Western Europe was restored to peace.
