Sweet Gratitude: Candy Bomber rededicates Frankfurt's Berlin Airlift Memorial

Retired U.S. Air Force Col. Gail Halvorsen, a C-52 Skymaster pilot also known as the Candy Bomber, center, poses with U.S. Air Forces in Europe Airmen from Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany, and Ramstein Air Base, Germany, after the reopening ceremony of the Berlin Airlift Memorial outside Frankfurt International Airport, Germany, Nov. 22, 2016. Most of the Airmen serve with the 726th Air Mobility Squadron, which traces its lineage to Halvorsen's efforts as part of the airlift, which delivered more than two million tons of food to the blockaded citizens of West Berlin between June 1948 and October 1949.
