Is that like burying money so non-profits won't seize it all?

What an exciting and historically intriguing story.

I so hope they'll succeed in their mission, and that there will be a detailed follow-up story to let us know.

It's more like looking for your Thorazine in the medicine cabinet, which you should have done before sitting down to the computer.

Great Story......A Warrior From the Greatest Generation....Pilot Wings are an achievement in life...and over the years its value and meaning more so.It is a quite tribute to so many lost Wings in that Dam War.....More than One hundred Thousand of airman perished then.Not many airman left.
Hope he finds them,and himself!

God Bless our service men who fought so bravely so that people have the freedom to say ridiculous things. I'm sure those people who wrote the unthoughtful remarks are only doing so in jest. And, like those that wrote positive words, are hoping that this gentleman finds his wings which he treasures so very much. Good luck to you in your search!!

Thank you Pop (Army), Uncle Reuben (Army), and Uncle Tubby (Marines)for making sure I only had to learn to speak German if I felt like it. My remark was directed towards the person who posted the first two rather bizarre comments.

well he wouldn't have had to fear bbeing beaten or killed. The Germans tended to show more respect to other whites, especially Americans. Didn't anyone ever watch hogans heroes? Lol
