Hear firsthand stories from 93 year old WWII Pilot, Dr. Harold Brown as he recounts his time in combat.
Hear firsthand stories from 93 year old WWII Pilot, Dr. Harold Brown as he recounts his time in combat. On his 30th mission, March 14, 1945, Dr. Brown was shot down over enemy territory, bailing out of his badly damaged P-51 and being taken as a prisoner of war (POW). For six weeks he was kept captive, the possibility of losing his life staring him starkly in the face. Dangers surrounded him, interrogations, friendly fire, as he was forced to walk from one POW camp to another. Harold will share his story including his liberation by Allied Forces.
