Well that brought tears to my eyes. Amazing, I have never heard of this.

Many years ago, I used to wake up to one of the local radio channels that carried Paul Harvey's syndicated "The Rest of the Story" broadcast in the very early mornings. I remember him telling this story and later found out it was entirely true and that it is a rare glimpse into the human element in war. And now you know...the rest of the story...good day!

How heartwarming. Now then, I wouldve demanded their surrender under penalty of flaming their 17. Ditch or die!!! BANZAI!!
(Now I wanna play some IL-2)!
