Berlin's 'Candy Bomber', has passed at 101 years
We are saddened by the passing of Retired U.S. Air Force Col. Gail Halvorsen, infamously known as the "Candy Bomber". We were last honored by his visit of the 70th Berlin Airlift commemoration at Wiesbaden Clay Kaserne in June 2019. Berlin Airlift, America’s first major test of resolve during the Cold War and one of the largest humanitarian aid missions in history. When supplies were short during the Berlin Airlift, he dropped candy from his plane for the children of the city of Berlin. Rest in peace and thank you for your service.
