Wishing a very happy birthday to Gail Halvorsen who turns 100 today! When WWII ended, Gail served missions dropping food supplies to hungry Berliners. When he noticed the kids didn't have anything sweet, he also dropped candy to them, earning the title, "Candy Bomber."
Happy birthday, Gail, and thank you for your service! 🍭✈️ 🇺🇸
