World War II Reunion

Veterans of a daring and costly mission in the skies over occupied Europe in World War Two gather for an important reunion.    

Nearly a dozen veterans of the bombing raid on the German-held oil fields at Ploesti in Romania are at Dayton's U.S. Air Force Museum.    

During the raid, called Operation Tidal Wave nearly one third of Allied planes were shot down. Five medals of honor were awarded.    

There will be private events for the survivors tomorrow, followed by a public memorial on Thursday, the 70th anniversary of the raid.
