Re: 9 Aug 44 - 3 COs in a day - 353FS/354FG/9AF

To remember the 71st anniversary of 9 Aug 44 when 353FS CO Don Beerbower and Acting CO Bud Emmer were shot down by German groundfire. Don was KIA and Bud became MIA then POW and died 6 months later at the POW transit camp at Dulag Luft Wetzlar.

Their contribution to the war effort on the Allied side and their supreme sacrifice will not be forgotten!
