During World War II, a B-24 bomber crashed in the Czech Republic.  It crashed minutes away from my Grandfather’s home.  Out of the 11 member crew, only one airman, Ray Noury, survived the crash.  The town celebrated the 60th anniversary of the crash by honoring the lone survivor.  It was the first time he made the trip back to the crash site to reflect on the events that happened that day — 60 years ago.

During the anniversary event, my Grandfather translated and made some comments commemorating the occasion.  The highlights of the event can be seen below.
