101st Airborne Div. Gander Memorial

Sun Sep 22, 2019 12:10 pm

While attending the 9/11 Memorial Services in Gander, Newfoundland** a week ago….. I again visited the Silent Witness Memorial honouring those of the 101st Airborne Div. of Ft. Campbell Ky killed in the Arrow Air crash in Gander on Dec 12, 1985, taking the lives of 248 passengers and 8 crew.

(** Gander took in 7,000 stranded airline passengers on 9/11 when US airspace closed…..housed and fed them for 4 days nearly doubling the town population Here’s a short video on Gander’s role)
