Our War: O'Fallon radio operator, gunner flew 25 missions

The Royal Air Force pilot was the best, until he shot up the mess hall. "He went into his briefing and found out our next mission was to Berlin and they wanted us at 12,000 feet, which was really low," said Vassil Georgeff, 90, of O'Fallon. "He went in the mess hall and shot it up. I never heard from him again."
