World War II Veteran Waist Gunner – Peter C. Bandy lays a flower at the Greek-American VFW Post 6633 headstone. Bandy flew 35 missions in the famed “Thunderbird” B-17 Bomber. The bomber today is immortalized as a mural in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC. At 92, he can still recall key details encompassing the moments of his WW II service. “The sky is unmerciful; I don’t know how they missed us” reminds Bandy, as bombs exploded all around him.
Memorial Day will be observed today, 11:00 am, at Fernwood Cemetery in Yeadon, PA by the Greek-American VFW Post 6633. They will host their annual service, and everyone is invited to attend. Be sure to thank those that have given so much for our freedom.
