Memorial Day 2015

Veteran finishes one final mission
His day started at 3 a.m. for a bombing mission over Budapest. Robert Geisert, then a second lieutenant in the Army Air Corps, readied his crew, ate a quick breakfast, and took his place behind the controls of a B-24 bomber. July 14, 1944, was to be his 19th mission, his second mission with that crew. It would be their last.
