The Lost Airmen of Buchenwald: We'll Meet Again

Grandpa Ed singing We'll Meet Again as we closed the unveiling of a plaque commemorating the 169 Allied Airmen that endured Buchenwald.

Here are the four surviving Airmen that made it to the 69th anniversary of the liberation of Buchenwald:

Hope we all meet again next year, gents.  Honoured to have spent the weekend with you - you truly are inspiring.
