Cost of War > Folded Wings


This section is dedicated to those members of the 445th who survived the war, came home to loved ones, and returned to civilian life.  They seldom talked about what they had experienced, although they continued to remember comrades lost, and a few were haunted by a sense of guilt for surviving.  It is for the living to remember those who have gone before and the sacrifices they made for us.

This section begins with the list of those who have rejoined their squadron friends on their never-ending mission.
