Heartwarming Story of American WWII Pilot Honored for Decades in France

See how his bereft widow only learned about his heroics and his whereabouts over 60 years later!

First Lieutenant Billie Harris was an American fighter pilot, shot down and killed over Nazi occupied France in 1944. Due to a mix up with records, Harris’ widow, Peggy, had no idea what happened to her husband for over 60 years. All she knew was that he was missing in action and had never come home from the war. Then, all these decades later, Peggy found out that Billie was not only buried in Normandy, France, but he was been honored as a hero by a tiny French village for all this time! See how his heroic final act saved the lives of villagers who have never forgotten him.
