World War II veterans get pinned after 60 years

Poised between the C-17 Globemaster III and a KC-135 Stratotanker, members of the 452nd Bombardment Group stand together as they once did 60 years ago, but without their B-17, Sep. 8. This group was awarded the Distinguished Service Award, later known as the Presidential Citation, for their actions during a bombing campaign over Kaltenkirchen, Germany, where they delivered more than 176,000 pounds of bombs, crippling the German Air Force.
