Howard was the 1st pilot of a B24 bomber and was shot down over Madgeburg, Germany and finished out the war as a POW.

There are thousands of these commemorative brick paving stones on three sides of the fabulous National WWII Museum. Each is carefully recorded and can be found in seconds by the helpful volunteer staff who have the digital location by grid and section number. This brick was placed to honor Howard by all his children.  Happy and proud to find it today.

We spent the entire day at this wonderful, inspiring and educational masterpiece. My father, John R. Conway Sr, landed on Utah Beach on D-Day. He was not wounded there on the landing beach, but was a few weeks later as his 90th Infantry Division moved inland.

I will be posting a separate blog on that visit after sorting through all the photos. It’s the veterans of that world-changing war who deserve the acknowledgement.
