AN AMERICAN HERO AND GENTLEMAN
The recovery of the six downed Airmen, Heros themselves, was spectacular and wonderful, however it was costly. America lost a hero that day Captain David Wagener, pilot of A-1E, Sandy 08 was shot down and killed. The story doesn't end here.  If we were to multiply the six men recoverd by 3 or 4.  Hero indeed.  Thank you David.
