Owen Streeper - World War II
Owen B. Streeper served in the Army Air Corps during World War II, flying missions over Europe as a ball turret gunner in B-24s. In May 1944 his aircraft was shot down over Nice, France, where he joined the French resistance. He was briefly taken prisoner by the advancing American troops before they were able to confirm that he was an American airman.
