WWII veteran recalls once top-secret flights over Europe
from Stars and Stripes
For more than 40 years, World War II veteran Russell Bond couldn't talk about his 33 top secret combat flight missions over Europe with the Office of Strategic Service as a Carpetbagger. He couldn't even tell his family, including his eight brothers who also served in World War II — all of whom returned back home to Fond du Lac, Wis., alive. It has been 72 years since the United States' involvement in World War II began. With each passing day, about 1,000 veterans of the 16 million who served pass away — and with them goes a piece of American history.
