It’s a monument to a B-17 crew shot down over Belgium in 1943, unveiled today (Aug. 17) in Lummen, Belgium. The tailgunner was James Tolbert of the North Side. His son is John Tolbert, who attended the ceremony today and sent me the image. The names of the crewmembers are on this monument along with an image of the plane, “Dear Mom.”

The story is BELGIUM0818, to run tomorrow.
