This is a photo of Colonel Gail Seymour "Hal" Halvorsen, the original "Candy Bomber" who dropped mini parachutes with chocolates to German children during the Berlin Airlift.

Our Museum was honored to host the 70th anniversary reunion of the Berlin Airlift Veterans Association in September, and it is because of our donors that we were able to host such a historical event.
