Linda Dewey, our presenter this week, spoke about the Kassel Mission of World War II.
Ms. Dewey’s father, Bill Dewey, was a pilot in the 445th Bomb Group in WWII.  35 bombers and 336 men of this Group suffered the greatest single-day loss to one airfield in aviation history.  In what was supposed to be an easy mission, soon became a tragedy on the return flight to the airfield they were attacked without fighter support.  In a battle that took only 6 minutes, only 4 of the 35 planes returned. 
A video told the story of the battle and the losses sustained and ended with both the Americans and Germans coming together in 1990 at a ceremony memorializing the location of where the lead plane crashed. 
As Ms. Dewey stated – no one who dies for their country should be forgotten.
