    Lt McGahee is my great-uncle and I am very proud of him and thankful to the Dutch people for honoring him and the crew of Sack Time Sally.
    J.H. McGahee is still in good health and I am thankful for every day that I can share with him….

    Roy Braly was my brother-in-law. My sister Jeanne, his surviving wife, and was honored by a visit to Opeinde some years ago. I am planning a February, 2018 trip to Amsterdam with my 13 year old grandson. I would love to bring him to Opeinde during that time. Can you direct me to someone for arrangements?

    I am the grand-niece of John Filegar(the correct spelling of his last name) and I was so happy to actually find a story about what happened that day. He never talked much about what happened or his time of a POW and I didn’t want to ever make him. It was nice to have some of the blanks filled in. Thank you for your research and writing.
