June 30, 1944: Fifty members of the United States 460th Bomb Group embarked on an important mission to destroy German oil refineries in Silesia, Hungary, only to come under heavy attack. Sgt. John L. Lenburg, on his 36th mission, was shot down along with the crew of their B-24, "Miss Fortune", over enemy lines near Lake Balaton, Hungary. Taken prisoner (or "Kriegsgefangenen #6410", the code name the Germans gave him), he never knew if he would see his homeland again.
